Ticks were caught in record numbers by volunteers in The Netherlands last year, at least 16,500. This means that tick bites increased as well, and with that, the risk of catching Lyme disease.
The Netherlands attracts many foreign investors. However, those companies pay only little tax because just a small part of their ‘investments’ end up in the real economy.
Most Dutch experienced a reduction in their salary last year. Wages decreased most in the agricultural sector (-6,6 percent) and in hospitality (-3,5 percent). Employment website Monsterboard concluded this after questioning 14 thousand people for the Wage Index, de Loonwijzer.
