Due to inflation, the homework allowance for employees has to increase from 2 to 3 euros per day. This is what the CNV trade union advocates. A survey by the union among a thousand home workers shows that the current compensation of 2 euros per day is not sufficient due to the persistently high inflation.

More than six in ten respondents cannot manage with 2 euros a day. This tax-free allowance was established two years ago, but in the meantime everything has become considerably more expensive, explains CNV. In addition to energy, the home worker also spends more on coffee, tea, toilet paper and water.

CNV emphasizes that one in three home workers receives no compensation at all. The union calls this a significant saving for employers. More than a quarter of home workers do receive a cost-effective compensation.
