Slave market Germany

ARD radiofeature, November 2011. 55 Minutes. By Tom Schimmeck & Thilo Guschas.

Slave market Germany.

Dumping is everywhere. Millions of low-incomeearners workers in precarious circumstances. Only 60 per cent of the working population have an open-ended employment contract. There are more and more „mini-job workers“. Nearly one million temporary workers get a salary that is typically much lower than the salary of their collegues who work as regular staff. Many of them are Aufstocker, working poor who have to rely on financial support from state authorities. The worlds of employment drift apart, experts say. At the bottom end: The dark world of seasonal workers and illegal persons.
