Tax money is used for ‘unemployment’

– Newly arrived war refugees from Ukraine should no longer receive citizenship benefits, but be subject to the law on benefits for asylum seekers, Bijan Tzir-Sarai told Bild, suggesting that this would force Ukrainians to look for work.

He also noted that there is a shortage of workers in Germany, particularly in the catering, construction and maintenance sectors. According to him So the German government should not use tax money for “unemployment”.

– On the contrary, the German politician said, we must ensure that these people find work.

There is no plan to cut aid

Meanwhile, Scholz’s SPD and the Greens reject the idea. Marcel Fratscher, head of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW), called it “pure populism”.

If Germany treats refugees badly and limits their benefits, no one will be better off, and no one will have a single euro, he insisted.

Chancellor Olaf Schalz is of the same opinion. His colleagues said there were no plans to limit aid to Ukrainian refugees.
