In reality it's more like a 10% increase.
Plus adding it to the Nation Insurance to start (with it moving out as it's own tax in 2023) is sneaky.

I foresee a storm coming, and not a pretty one at that, especially when everything is going up as well.

>more like a 10% increase.

And the social tax is just the one the media is mostly talking about. There are other significant taxes added as well.
