Life set to get harder, say seven out of 10

Over seven out of 10 Dutch people believe future generations will have a harder life than those alive now, according to a survey for the social development council RMO.

Almost six out of 10 think their own children will be worse off financially – including 45% of high income families.
And 85% think it a problem that rich and poor are leading increasingly separate lives because they mix less at school and in residential areas.
