Old Netherlands Antilles law picked up by Government

AsjesWILLEMSTAD – The ‘Bion’ legislation will come into force on September 1 of this year. The law is intended to encourage youths between 18 and 30 who have been unemployed for more than a year, to get a job. This was announced by the Prime Minister, Ivar Asjes and the Minister of Health, Ben Whiteman.

The ‘Bion’ legislation was initiated 25 years ago, according Asjes and published by the then government of the Netherlands Antilles. This week the cabinet has decided to implement the law.

The cost of implementing the law, according to Whiteman depends on the infrastructure, which has to be set up. A large part of this is already available via the job bank. The minister does not expect high costs, but thinks especially on the education of the public and staff training. Whiteman does not exactly know how much it will cost the government to implement the law.
