Almost all Dutch workers will get out a higher net salary in 2017, according to payroll administrator AD Nederland. People earning a gross salary of 1,750 euros will see the biggest increase, nearly 0.75 percent. That's about 11 euros net per month, NU.nl reports.
The Netherlands is emerging from the crisis stronger. Things are going better than expected, but still not good enough, according to Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem while presenting the Budget Memorandum to the Tweede Kamer, lower house of parliament. As per tradition, Dijsselbloem presented the Budget in the same briefcase his predecessor Lieftinck used to present the budget in 1946 after World War II. Dijsselbloem called the briefcase "a small symbol of recovery".
