North Rhine-Westphalia: Trade unionists demand higher inheritance and wealth taxes

Bochum (dpa / lnw) - In view of the additional government spending as a result of the Corona crisis and the Ukraine war, the NGG union is demanding higher inheritance and wealth taxes. "First short-time work, now inflation - in North Rhine-Westphalia more and more employees are having to accept a loss of income," said Mohamed Boudih, NRW state head of the Food, Enjoyment and Restaurants (NGG) trade union, on Monday in Bochum before a meeting with works councils. "It's high time politicians asked the rich to pay more - and taxed excessive profits and assets more heavily." According to Boudih, an "excess profit tax" for current profiteers among companies is also necessary.

The extra tax revenue should also be used for other government relief packages to cushion the additional burden on employees. More and more employees could "no longer afford many of the products they need for everyday life," the trade unionist warned.
