NEOS: Government must finally reduce non-wage labor costs

Schellhorn: “What is currently happening at MAN is an example of the structural weaknesses in Austria. The cost factor labor must be reduced dramatically in order to be competitive. "

Vienna (OTS) - "Every government announces it, none has implemented it so far: the lowering of ancillary wage costs," says NEOS economics spokesman Sepp Schellhorn and once again reminds of the countless empty promises made by coalitions of all stripes. “What is happening at MAN in Steyr is an example of the structural weaknesses in Austria and the urgent need for action. Without a reduction in non-wage labor costs, our location will become increasingly incapable of competition. The cost factor labor must be reduced dramatically in order to be competitive. Employees have to earn more and cost less. This is the only way for companies to keep jobs. "

Schellhorn sees the responsibility above all in the ÖVP, which has been leading the economic and financial agendas in the federal government for decades: “It's a bad joke that the economic association is now spreading out here and loudly shouting 'wage costs down'. As we know, the ÖVP is well connected. As part of the turquoise "family", the President of the Economic Association, Harald Mahrer, Finance Minister Blümel, can send an SMS with said request. Let's see if he gets what the location, the company and the employees urgently need. "
