The week ends and chaos has settled among the self-employed. The chaos and, why not say it, the indignation.
And it is that these days we have learned that the Union of Technicians of the Australia WhatsApp Number List Ministry of Finance (Gestha) have published a report in which the magnifying glass is put on self-employment that is "accused" of evading the payment of taxes .
More than a million and a half self-employed workers are in the eye of the hurricane.
They are those who state that they earn less than 12,000 euros per year , exactly between 8 and 12,000 euros, something that draws the attention of technicians since the figure is below that of medium-profile wage earners and pensioners.
1 in 5 freelancers earn less than their employees
The report also points out that "what sets off alarm bells is the fact that almost one in five self-employed workers with dependent workers declare on average less earnings than those paid by their own employees."
The technicians emphasize that "from the statistics it is clear that 3 million employees would earn more than their own bosses ". A very striking fact for the Gestha that adds "as if being a medium profile worker or a pensioner was more profitable than working as a businessman or professional, among which are architects, notaries, lawyers or doctors in private practices, among others." self-employed and highly qualified professions.
