How it continued

Social domain

February 2021 - ...

On February 9, 2021, I am sending this letter with suggestions for improved social infrastructure in a broad sense.

State Secretary Wiersma (SZW) does not link welfare to minimum wage where in European Netherlands it is done with welfare. I write another letter.

On January 16, I write a letter about the (non-)discussion about the benchmark minimum subsistence security bes-islands.

On May 18 I will write a letter about the social benefits in the Dutch Caribbean compared to those in the European Netherlands. The government should be ashamed of itself.

On June 8, 2022, I will write a letter about the commotion (especially on Bonaire) about the social benefits lagging behind compared to the European Netherlands. My letter focuses on the factual non-existence of the discussion. All laws applicable in the European Netherlands are also applicable to the Caribbean Netherlands, unless.... (after all: comply or explain).

On July 9, 2022, I write a bill to the chairman of the just appointed committee on social minumum (it is about "the Netherlands" and of course that includes "Caribbean Netherlands": it can't hurt to point this out to the chairman).

On July 25, 2022, there appears the call on to comment on the SZW Laws Amendment Act Caribbean Netherlands 2023. That same day I will provide my comments.

On October 5, 2022, I will write a plea for a social minimum for the Caribbean Netherlands identical to that of (European, or: all of) the Netherlands.

On October 15, 2022, I write a letter with again a plea to consider the Caribbean Netherlands (also in this respect) as an integral part of the country of the Netherlands.

On October 28, 2022, I will write a letter about the (unjustified) disparity between AOW and AOV.

On November 3, 2022, I will write a letter on how a bright new future can develop after the surcharge affair.

On November 13, 2022, I am writing a letter in preparation for the debate on (among other things) the social domain in the Caribbean Netherlands.

On November 16, 2022, I am writing a letter in which I put the concept of "equal" critically under the magnifying glass.
