Ministry favours high-income earners: former minister

Labour Minister Viera Tomanová has proposed new social laws that push for an increase in compulsory payments to social and health insurance funds for high-income earners, the Sme daily reported on August 15.

At the same time, the proposal gives some professions - such as tax advisors, auditors, architects, lawyers and notaries - the option of not contributing to these funds at all. These people, whose financial situation is usually very good, thus would not have to contribute their high payments to the solidarity pension scheme.

Former labor minister Iveta Radičová said Tomanová was favouring privileged groups.
