‘Tax Threshold

TUC calls for tax regime overhaul

In a media conference on Sunday, TUC General Secretary, Clemence Kanau, said the tax issue will be a mainstay of TUC’s agenda this year.

He said while the government has announced in the 2019 Budget an increase in the ‘Tax Threshold,’ the rising cost of goods and services still remain a critical factor diminishing the purchasing power of workers.

Kanau said the tax regime has for far too long been a burden on the workers, and coupled with inflation moves them into the poverty line.

The TUC will make a strong stance against this.
