Aukje de Vries' Diary Day 36

On the news I hear that the organisations of older people have a meeting with the Minister of Social Affairs today. They tell him they do not agree with the proposal that pensions will be frozen for five years. They also mention that the costs of care are rising fast, which also affects older people more than any other age group. The Minister does not make any promises, he only agrees to propose that the government should pay special attention to the incomes of older people.

I spend most of the day at my computer, reading e-mails and newsletters and doing some work for one of my secretariats.
