Housing Minister Hugo de Jonge told Nederlands Dagblad that the current increase in the Dutch population is unsustainable; He said that this increase will increase the pressure on the housing and have the potential to disturb the social peace.

Emphasizing that the population growth of around 100,000 per year, which is largely “immigration”, should be significantly reduced, De Jonge said, “Migration will always happen and there is a need for it to some extent, but it is also a fact that the current migration-induced population growth has reached unsustainable levels.” said.

According to figures from the national statistical agency CBS, the population of the Netherlands has increased by one million over the past 10 years to 17.7 million.

A total of 208,000 foreign nationals moved to the Netherlands last year, after a year when the immigration rate fell sharply due to pandemic restrictions. The largest group, 117,500 people, came from other EU countries or EFTA, while the number of Dutch citizens returning from abroad was 44,500.

The current coalition government, made up of the right-wing VVD and CDA, Liberal Democrats D66 and the small Christian party ChristenUnie, has begun to work harder to set immigration targets and fundamentally overhaul its asylum policy. De Jonge, in particular, underlined that they have to be more controlled and selective in determining which sectors have a shortage of workers.

Schiphol will offer security guards a new salary to end the chaos at the airport

Schiphol will offer security guards a new salary to end the chaos at the airport

Robert Carsouw, chief financial officer of Schiphol Airport, said that after the final salary negotiations, they plan to make a new offer to the security guards within two weeks.

Carsouw stated that there will be no improvement in the chaotic long queues at the airport in a short time. Schiphol will also take action to improve working conditions to make airport security jobs more attractive.

Airport management has started discussions with the ministry and security companies to find out what is needed to attract more security guards. At this point, in addition to salaries, two more criticisms emerged: Carsouw stated that the security guards had difficulties in scheduling working hours, especially due to irregular shifts, and that they needed a place to rest during breaks, and that the airport started working on both issues.

The FNV labor union had previously reported that security guards were looking for work elsewhere after the temporary summer bonus disappeared in September. Joost van Doesburg, FNV’s Schiphol campaign manager, said many security guards wanted to leave the airport because of this.

Schiphol Airport last week called on airlines to cancel their flights to contain the crowds in the departure lounges. Following the recent cancellations, Schiphol offered the airlines 350 euros in compensation per canceled passenger.
