12 Euro Minimum Wage?: Craft President: politics should keep out of the way

crafts President Hans Peter Woll zeal has criticised a push by the Federal Minister of labour, Hubertus Heil (SPD) for a rapid increase in the minimum wage to twelve sharp. In order for healing to lead the work of the minimum wage Commission and the work of the social partners "to the point of absurdity," said wool zeal of the German press Agency.

In the first year in which companies really have less liquidity have, increasing the minimum wage is less.“

The minimum wage Commission had recommended at the end of June, an increase of four levels until mid-2022, initially at the beginning of 2021 to 9.50 euros, in mid-2021 to 9.60 euros and the beginning of 2022 9,82 euros. Currently, the legal wage is a lower limit in the case of 9,35 Euro per hour.

healing will quickly reach a further strong increase to twelve Euro. To do this, he wants to make the Commission's new specifications, as he had announced. In the body of the top representatives of the employers and the trade unions will vote on the minimum Wage. The Commission is based on the previous average tariff increase.

"The latest decision has shown once again that the minimum wage Commission's responsibility to decide and to make compromises with a sense of proportion in the situation," said wool zeal, President of the Central Association of German crafts. "There is, in my view, therefore, no reason to change the legal basis.

The social partners in the framework of its competence, at the best how to design a Central working conditions, in order to secure the competitiveness of the enterprises and not to jeopardize employment.“ It was not the task of the statutory minimum wage, this tried-and-tested mechanisms of collective partnership to undermine.
