The fund "required" contribution fee/tax, while it has been reduced at times, has steadily increased overall.
It was 3.9% in 1999. Now it is 16.8%
16.1% is what it was set at, making the previous article correct. That is what would have been charged had the new rate not gone into effect (making the claim correct) until adjusted again.
Do you really not get that?
It is now at 16.8%.
Your contention that it would not be left where it is and be a smaller rate instead is baseless.
There is no evidence that that will happen. None.
And as the article suggested, those increase in funds will be used for other projects.
