People on welfare get 1000 tax-free dollars in your hand no later than this autumn, and sommerchecken going to increase employment by approximately 750 persons.
But the effect is going to take of.
It assesses the ministry of Finance, according to a folketingssvar from the finance minister, Nicolai Wammen (S).
the Calculation to be based on increased private consumption, which, taken together, will enhance the gross domestic product with 0.05 percent, says the the response. Here, also, that the impact in the subsequent years, it is estimated 'gradually phased out'.
if you Ask the bourgeois-liberal think-tank Cepos, is the gain at the sommerchecken too small.
chief Economist Mads Lundby Hansen can't see the point of sommerchecken.
- For me to see have the check a very small jobeffekt. The objective was to stimulate employment, but the effect is only on the 750 persons.
- People on welfare-has not been put at a disadvantage during the crisis, he believes, has not reduced the benefits, he says.
It comes on the whole to cost a little over 2.2 billion dollars handing out money. Over 54.000 has been available during the crisis.
Sommerchecken is a part of the so-called summer package, which a majority in the Danish Parliament have adopted. It must among other things be to kick the time of consumption during the coronakrisen in Denmark.
another aspect of the summer package is, that the danes with a frozen holiday pay shall be paid a part of them.
It does not apply to persons on welfare who do not have holiday pay for the good. But Mads Lundby Hansen does not believe that this provides the opportunity to freely give 1000 dollars to the group.
- the Increase of the overførselsindkomsten is taxpayers ' money. However, the holiday pay the worker's own money. There can be easily formed an expectation that overførselsindkomsten will be set up during the crisis, and it may cost on employment, he says.
