Golodets reported on the development in Russia of the law on “tax on” social parasitism ” – the unemployed will pay for medical services
Russia is developing a bill to impose a tax on” social parasitism”, said the government. According to Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets, the document will oblige the unemployed Russians to make payments for the use of social infrastructure.
About it the Deputy head of the Cabinet, said on September 28 at the “government hour” in the Federation Council, reports TASS. “Now, a draft of the law, when those citizens who have chosen the path narabotu, they will have to make a payment for actual use of social infrastructure. This draft law”, – said the Golodets.
Vice Prime Minister reminded that the Russian legislation allows Russians not to work. But now, unemployed people do not pay insurance contributions, including in the MHI system. “Another part of the population we don’t have to pay fees from the payroll, and these people we see – it’s 68 million people,” – said Golodets.
According to the Deputy head of the government, in Russia there are 75 million people of working age. Thus, 7 million people are potentially “in the shadows”: it’s able-bodied citizens who are not officially working, does not pay contributions to the social Fund, but use the services under the MLA. “All the others we see – we see where they live, see their age, and so forth, but we have to state is usually that the person wishes to work and not work”, – said the Golodets.
Therefore, in Russia the bill that would force officially unemployed citizens to pay for the use of clinics and hospitals, said the Golodets.
We will remind, in may, the Deputy head of the Ministry of labour and social protection Andrei Pudov has informedthat the office was discussing the possibility of imposing a tax for able-bodied but unemployed Russians. The official did not rule out that Russia will share their experience with colleagues from Belarus. The Kremlin then said that a common position on this account the leadership of the country yet.
In April 2015, the deputies of St. Petersburg legislative Assembly , offered to install for parasitism criminal liability. But in the state Duma this idea was called unconstitutional.
At the end of may 2015, the Ministry of labor subordinate to the Federal service of labour and employment (Rostrud) has proposed to impose “social parasites” mandatory social payment. It was assumed that you would pay all citizens who have attained 18 years of age, with the exception of the formally employed, registered unemployed, students, pensioners and other preferential categories. Officials then stated that illegal employment is a blow to the economy and hinders the development of the country. Then in the state Duma received a bill to exclude from the system those who do not work under an employment contract and are not registered at the labor exchange.
In June 2015 the Ministry of labor rejected the idea of a “tax on” social parasitism”. Thus then Minister Maxim Topilin said that those who are for the entire economically active age do not pay taxes and did not do deductions in insurance funds, “something to do”.
In Belarus in April 2015 was published the presidential decree “On prevention of social dependency”, under which citizens, foreigners and persons without citizenship, permanently residing in the country, but pay no taxes, should pay to the budget 3.6 million Belarusian rubles (about $ 250) annually. “Nothing to be afraid of. Idlers idlers should work. Those who do not pay taxes, have to pay. This is a normal, civilized practice,” said the President of Belarus.
In the USSR criminal prosecution for “keeping a parasitic way of life” was carried out in 1961 and was discontinued in 1991 after the adoption of the law “On employment of population”.
