This is the story on bbcnews.com. ‘A group of rich Germans has launched a petition calling for the government to make wealthy people pay higher taxes. The group say they have more money than they need, and the extra revenue could fund economic and social programmes to aid Germany’s economic recovery.’ Would you like a tax hike for the rich in your country?
Do you agree with their sentiments? If you’re one of your country’s higher earners, do you want your government to take more money from you? And if you’re in a lower wage bracket, should the rich in your country be giving more to help you to get through the economic downturn?
