Economy and business: 25 percent think the requirement is too high, and 19 percent think the requirement is too low.

This is revealed in the survey carried out by InFact for The nation.

The government has decided that farmers’ income should be raised to the same level as teachers and nurses by 2027. According to the government’s calculation method, the income gap is NOK 136,000.

To start the job of closing the income gap, the farmers’ organizations have jointly demanded NOK 3.9 billion in this year’s agricultural settlement.

According to the survey, there is a geographical spread in farmer support. While close to 60 per cent in Oslo think the requirement is appropriate or too low, as many as 74.1 per cent in Northern Norway think the same.
