Netherlands -Worries about childcare -October 23, 2012

Trade union confederation FNV is worried about the future of child care and has written to parliament asking for the new round of cuts in the sector due in 2013 to be stopped. Crèches and after-school clubs have already been hit by cuts and the FNV says this is having an adverse effect on young working mothers and their position on the labour market. A spokeswoman for the social affairs ministry told next year's cut in child care will be €200m. The FNV says this will lead to the collapse of the system.
