This coalition did a lot of things right when it came to the citizen’s benefit reform. It is right to focus more on support and training for the long-term unemployed than on placing them in the next precarious job. It is right to let people have more of their retirement provisions and assets than before, so that their thoughts revolve around their professional future and not around panic about social decline. It is right to rely more on incentives than on pressure through sanctions, even if this is sometimes necessary. These changes have only been in place since this year with the new citizens’ money. But now this reform is threatening to dry up financially. The traffic light coalition is allowing this area of its policy to wither that could bear fruit.
