Re: Foreigners should pay higher taxes

This is exactly the point.

As long as there is that bunch of fools around like that Schneider-Ammann,

it will always be cheaper for institutions and private enterprises to hire foreign labor,

a deterrent against which could be higher taxes for that kind of labor, as this would narrow the gap at least a bit.
The institutions won`t change habits unless you tax THEM for hiring foreigners. Otherwise the foreigner just ends up with a lower net salary.
