Two issues with that number
It is whole EU I believe, so includes all the French etc earning huge amounts in the city. Considering how little tax minimum wage workers pay it is difficult to see them contributing positively.
Secondly even after reading one of the papers on the subject it wasn’t entirely clear if it was an instantaneous cut, ie whether it included the lifetime costs. Of course a young worker is paying tax and not using many services, but what about if they still til death? That could cut both ways if we haven’t paid their childhood health and education costs and if they go home before becoming expensive old folk. Though if they earn here and take/send the money home out of our economy...
