The Netherlands is the envy of the world.
Its capital city, Amsterdam, is a centre of fashion and art.
It is a cosmopolitan and progressive place.
But it is also the world’s most expensive country to live in, according to a recent report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).
The report, which looked at data from the latest census data, said that Amsterdam cost more than Germany and Austria combined in 2016.
The Dutch spend more per person than almost any other country in the world, according the EIU.
But the country has some serious problems: low unemployment, a high rate of inflation and an average unemployment rate of 10.7%.
The cost of living has been increasing for years, and unemployment has risen in recent years.
The EIU says the Dutch are the only country in Europe where the average cost of housing is higher than the cost of food.
In the past year alone, the cost per month of rent has increased by 9.5% in Amsterdam and 7.2% in the rest of the country.
But as you might expect, not everyone has a comfortable life here.
Some people are paying rent in exchange for working.
And the Dutch have some of the strictest labour laws in the developed world, including a ban on collective bargaining.
In 2017, the country introduced a wage cap that meant the minimum wage was now capped at 8,000 euros a month.
The cap is set to be raised to 9,500 euros in 2020.
Many businesses also use temporary workers, or workers on “fringe benefits”, to avoid paying them the full minimum wage.
The minimum wage is set at 6,500 to 7,000 a month, but in some cases employers pay employees below that, and some workers earn less.
The low wages make it difficult for the poorest people to find work.
Some of these people do find work, but their jobs are insecure.
In March 2017, a small group of Dutch farmers protested outside a farm in the village of Kerkkum, in the north-eastern province of Meerdam.
They said that the low wage was hurting the livelihoods of local people.
“It’s just not good enough to say to the farmers: ‘You’re in this position because of a lack of labour rights,'” says Maria Van Hove, a spokeswoman for the farmers’ union.
The protests were also supported by a local farmer’s union, the Agricultural Federation of Meersdam, which has campaigned for more sustainable farming practices.
The farmer’s protest came just months after a court in Meerdums court ordered a new round of collective bargaining for more than 1,000 employees, including farmworkers.
The court also ruled that the union had breached the contract’s non-compete clauses, which prevented it from bargaining for better conditions in the future.
The union says it has won a higher wage for farmworkers, and is now appealing the decision.
In addition, the union has been trying to force the government to grant it a contract that would include the rights of its workers.
“We’ve tried to go to the court and try to get it to give us a contract,” says Hilde Kupers, the farmer’s leader.
The government has said it would not grant such a contract, and it has said that it is aware of the concerns of the farmers.
“But we know that this is a government that doesn’t want to give a guarantee for the welfare of its citizens,” says Kupters.
Many Dutch workers feel that they are being left behind by the government.
The labour law also has a significant effect on workers.
For example, the minimum salary is capped at 7,500 a month for employees over the age of 60.
It was raised to 8,500 in April 2018, but the government still considers that this amount is too low.
So in March 2017 the government announced that the minimum pay for employees under the age 50 would rise to 12,000 per month, which was much higher than what workers in other European countries are paid.
“The government has not even said anything about the fact that this salary is too high,” says Van Hovsema.
“So I think there is a strong feeling among the workforce that the government does not want them to be part of the workforce,” she says.
A lot of people in Meersdams farming community do not feel like they are getting a fair share.
“When I worked at a farm before, I didn’t get any wages,” says Nivi Vijma, a farmworker who has worked in the fields for nearly 30 years.
“If you work at the factory, you get 7,8,9 euros a day, which is not enough for you.
I’ve been working in the field for three years and I get 1,200 euros a week. “And the
