So much the pace, the Bundesrat rarely on the day. In may, he decided, in principle, to grant the over 60-Year-old after a modulation from the unemployment insurance, subsistence bridging performance. Well, five months later, he sends the template to the Parliament. Normally, the Federal Council is the principle decision needs to message to Parliament to about one and a half years.
The reason for the rush is the European political Agenda. Expected to be in may, limiting the initiative of the SVP in front of people, which requires the termination of the free movement of persons and, therefore, the bilateral agreements with the EU at risk. Already at the time of the mass immigration initiative, the fear of the over 50-Year-old in front of the job loss was a reason for the approval. The Bridging benefit is a response to the unease in the population and the pressure on the labour market, said social Affairs Minister Alain Berset in front of the media.
The Bridging benefit is based on the System of supplementary benefits, and to spare the older the controlled the speed on the Department of social services. A single person receives in accordance with the proposals of the Federal Council, a maximum of 58'350 Swiss francs in the year. The effective height is calculated cost of the unsecured, the amount for the basic needs of some 2,000 Swiss francs per month.
FDP insists on the minimum age of 62
During the SVP, the Bridging benefit as harmful declines, because more employees would prematurely deported in the welfare state, logs the FDP, at least in reservations. She claims that the benefits will be granted from the age of 62, and the controlled continue to work to strive. Otherwise the unemployed would search 58 no incentive to make, because you can first refer to during the two years of unemployment money. The FDP, the bridge performance declines, however, are not, in principle, not least because of their Federal councillor Karin Keller-Sutter has drafted the social protection together with the trade unions. FDP councillor Josef Dittli can imagine, however, "difficult to believe that the FDP of the template agrees, if the benefits are paid from the 60". "But it will depend on how the debate on the limitation initiative passes," says Dittli.
The green liberals keep the "Retirement of older unemployed" is wrong, such as GLP-national councillor Kathrin Bertschy says. The dismissal of older workers, will facilitate the employers as a result. In addition, the Federal Council is to construct a context of free movement of persons, and unemployment, does not exist. The freedom of movement have not led to higher unemployment, but to more Jobs, says Bertschy. The Federal Council will help the SVP to boost the Initiative, by manufacturers such as the SVP is a connection between unemployment and freedom of movement. GLP calls instead to invest the money in retraining and advanced training for the older unemployed.
Berset looks at it, however, unlikely that the Bridging benefit is promoting the dismissal of older workers. Who's to say that the economy in a bad light. In Vaud there is already such an achievement and it didn't come to more layoffs.
In the national Council on the Butt
The SVP criticized the Federal Council sharp. This would bring the trade unions with a new social power to combat the limiting of initiative and the framework agreement with the EU to agree. The Swiss Federation of trade unions (SGB) commends the Federal Council, however. Finally, the respond to rising unemployment among older workers. However, the SGB requires that the benefits be granted from the age of 57 years.
The template is already treated in December by the Council of States. It is assumed, that the Council of States accepted the template without substantial Changes. For SP, the greens and the CVP to support the Federal Council's proposals are likely to have in the future a majority in the small chamber. In the national Council, a majority is given the reservations of the FDP and the rejection of the GLP, however, is questionable. The votes of SP, Green, and CVP is not enough.
The Federal Council estimates that the initial cost of services to 30 million francs a year. In the introduction phase, every year about 4400 out are likely to have contributed to claim. The number of recipients will rise thereafter, so that by 2030, the financing will be around 230 million needed. Be financed the benefits from the Federal Treasury. Because the recipients will not be reliant thanks to the Bridging of the social assistance and retirement age less the supplementary benefits , attributed to the Federal Council with annual savings of 20 to 30 million Swiss francs.
