My last salary from Kauppalehti...vs Bulgaria and other parts of the EU…

Written by

Let’s start with the salary account itself (in Finland everything in that...accounting regard is sound, I mean that every month the salary department of one’s employer sends the salary bill to several instances, including your bank, where it’s saved for at least 5 years…). So according to it my previous (2014) year my cumulative brutto-salary was 53 017,82 €, from which 13 992,54 € taxes were paid (precalculated, could be leveled backwards…) and my basic monthly salary was 3 556,71 € (22,51 €/hour, at 37,5h working week). For the non Finnish people, the difference between 12x3 556,71=42 680,52 € and 53 017,82 € comes from the fact that in Finland every additional work, bonuses and so, come on top of one’s basic salary and with really very small exceptions, they are all taxable income! In my case all of my unused vacations were paid as a pretty much extra-paid lump-sum (plus the salary calculation for 2014 contains 3 (till the end of the year) salaries paid in accordance with my really very complicated illegal lay-off…contract...). I should also mention that my basic monthly salary of 3 556,71 € was quite likely lower than my native Finnish colleagues salaries (could be checked by the authorities…) and roughly equals the salary of an experienced bus-driver from the Helsinki metropolitan area…(they of course have much harsher working hours and...conditions…)...

The reasons why I write that is firstly my stand for equality on the human-rights and labour stage, where very often the foreign workers are directly (not taken to work, treated differently etc…) or indirectly (lower salary, worse rights and working conditions etc…) discriminated, as the general case is that in working conflicts, the local authorities defend the locals…, which in fact are pro-nationalistic and unjust aspects, outside the scope of the stated EU core values… Then for the very same reasons I want to show that...even in Finland (one of the EU countries with the lowest percentage of foreigners…even though at the top years of Nokia there were many...) it is possible to have a well educated white-collar worker paying equally-progressive taxes with the locals (a point the nationalists often argue against…).

Secondly I am often asked - how is/was there, so here I give a real example as such…as often I am asked - how I financed my trips...

Thirdly even today in Bulgaria and some other EU countries, it is really hard to find work for even the monthly taxes I paid in Finland - around 1 200 €/month...as also the working conditions could be whatsoever…

In my personal case I am sometimes implied to go back to Finland and to apply for a pension there... After all I have several craziness diagnoses from there (look point 3). However my New Finns and Europeans stand is also against the Finlandization past and practices of Finland as such… for the the very sake of the Finns themselves (...for that part of them, who accept it of course…)...Furthermore I left Finland in 2017...almost 3 years after my illegal lay-off and if Finland (...in a way very centralised state…) wanted, it would have pensioned me… Aurora Hospital was full of pensioned locals….

Kind regards, Rosti
