The OGBL union raised concerns over an increase in unemployment or partial unemployment, and the precarious situation for the self-employed.
The state of the housing emergency has clearly worsened as a result of the health crisis, according to the OGBL. The increase in the rent allowance should be extended beyond 31 December 2020, while rents should be frozen. At the same time, more social housing should be made available.
To finance all these measures, the OGBL has suggested a gradual increase in property tax. This would not be applied to the owners of their own homes, but to landowners in possession of a lot of land and real estate.
