Free at last – all the goods and services they could possibly want free at last
Via Mark in the comments of a previous post: Vienna’s benefits system acts as a ‘magnet for refugees’. You cannot be surprised if this is making people really angry:
Reinhold Lopatka, political leader of the ÖVP parliamentary group recently said the social system is especially unfair in Vienna and that refugees who have been granted asylum status in Austria get more money from the authorities than farmers receive in pension benefits.
“A farmer who has been working hard his whole life has spoken with me. He now receives pension benefits of €620 and his son has to subsidise him so that he can feed himself. Currently migrants in Vienna receive €837.60, although they have never contributed to our benefits system”.
Nor will they ever.
