Greens and the SPD can also read the German trade Union Federation (DGB) is in favour of a comprehensive Reform of the Hartz-IV system. A Central aim should be that workers from slipping in the future, so fast in Hartz IV, as previously, stated in a position paper, which is available ONLINE exclusively. Anyone who has paid ten years in the unemployment insurance, is intended to refer to, therefore, five additional months of unemployment benefits. So far, this performance, which is based on the last wage is paid, usually just for a year. In addition, the Hartz-IV is planned to rise, rule sets, and people without work, the right to an education. Who participates in a qualification measure, according to the plans of the DGB 15 percent more unemployment money, but at least 200 Euro.

On the basis of the Figures of 2017, the trade unions expect that per year, at least 200,000 people from their proposal would benefit. In the past year, slipped despite the ongoing shortage of skilled workers, and the economy is good, from the 370,000 unemployed from the higher unemployment benefit I in the Hartz-IV-reference, and 220,000 of them had to show for ten years of Employment.

According to the DGB model, for example, would get a 50-Year-old for at least 17 months of unemployment benefit I and a maximum of 29 months. Anyone who is under 50, but 20 years was employed, would have a duration of less than two years. And who loses, approximately 55 years of age and after 30 years of employment at his Job, which would then receive 33 months of unemployment money Also who I. a short time before the pension is and health problems it has, is longer than in the past to get unemployment money.

especially women, are not disadvantaged, education times and times in which the members were maintained, such as periods of employment to be treated. In addition, the unemployment benefit I is to be increased to a minimum height of 850 euros: Of which women especially would benefit, the long part-time worked and the unemployment benefit is often lower. In addition, the trade unions, the idea of a connection working loose money to the discussion: Thus, the slippage will be mitigated in Hartz IV, could be paid for a further two years unemployment benefit in the amount of 58 per cent of last net earnings.

rulesets should be re –

At the same time, the trade unions Hartz IV to revise The rule of the rates and increases are determined. The DGB proposes that a Commission of experts from scientists, representatives of the social partners, as well as from charities and organisations Concerned, determine the amount and regularly will adapt. In addition, the current sanctions are to be abolished. Nevertheless, the unions do not speak out in the position paper, generally speaking, against the rights and obligations for the unemployed. “The reference to good reasons is attached”, was important for social cohesion, says the paper. However, this is not likely to lead to the minimum subsistence level.

the proposals of The trade unions in this Form are new. Although the workers ‘ representatives have criticised a long time that Employees end up with long careers to fast in Hartz IV, but so far, the individual DGB had trade unions not on a concrete reform proposal. The position paper is a first serve.

“the construction of The Hartz-IV-system is measured in terms of the interests of the employed and the unemployed, fundamentally wrong and profoundly unjust,” said DGB Board member Annelie colorful Bach. “Employees should have the security to be not in need to be pushed back, but to be further from the unemployment insurance and funded care. Such a guaranteed catch-all promise to pays tribute to the work performance of employees and creating social security.”

After the ideas of the DGB would be to Hartz IV in the future, the last safety net for the unemployed – but not for people whose income is not enough to live on. You basically have to get other assistance, and generally not in the Hartz-IV-System.
