Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- The National Union of Café and Restaurant Owners in Morocco has declared a 24-hour warning strike in Rabat on May 31st.
They are protesting against a new tax decision imposed by the mayor of Rabat, which increases taxes for the sector to unparalleled levels.
The union plans to hold weekly protests in front of the Rabat municipality.
They argue that the decision-making process should involve professionals in the industry. They highlight that café and restaurant owners in Morocco pay taxes more frequently and at higher rates compared to their counterparts in Spain and Italy.
The union claims that the sector in Morocco faces excessive taxes and fees compared to European countries, based on their examination of tax laws and documents from Moroccan investors abroad.
