    Abstract

    Viewing the hiring subsidies in the Netherlands over the past decade, there seems to be a constant change in Acts: abolishing existing regulations and introducing new ones. The main measures focus on people at a considerable distance from the labour market, including long-term unemployed welfare recipients and people who have a work disability. There have also been some incentives for employers to hire older workers or young people; however, these schemes are smaller and more often of a temporary nature.
