The German minimum wage


"After many years of debates, 2015 saw the introduction of a statutory minimum wage of EURO 8.50 per hour ( EURO 8.84 since 2017) in Germany. While opponents of the minimum wage predicted negative effects on employment, some advocates expected the number of wage earners depending on social basic benefits to decrease significantly due to the minimum wage. In an interview for the IAB-Forum, Joachim Möller, Director of IAB, explains to what extent these fears or hopes proved true." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
