Vakbonden: 775.000 Nederlanders niet op vakantie door geldtekort

Vakbonden: 775.000 Nederlanders niet op vakantie door geldtekort

BRUSSEL (ANP) Ruim 775.000 Nederlanders hebben niet genoeg geld om een week op vakantie te kunnen gaan.
Dat is ongeveer 40 procent van de mensen met een laag inkomen in ons land, meldt de Europese vakbondskoepel ETUC op basis van onderzoek waar het AD eerder over berichtte.
De vereniging van vakbonden pleit voor een hoger minimumloon om het probleem tegen te gaan. In de hele EU heeft 28 procent van de mensen volgens ETUC te weinig geld om er een weekje tussenuit te gaan.
