Employer disrupts a minimum wage of twelve euros

Germany’s employers are considering taking legal action against the law for a minimum wage of 12 euros announced by the traffic light government. “Our problem is the way to get there,” said employer president Rainer Dulger in Berlin. “As the federal government intends to do at the moment, I consider it a gross violation of collective bargaining autonomy.” Federal Labor Minister Hubertus Heil (SPD) wants to present a law to raise the lower wage limit to 12 euros at the beginning of the year. On January 1, the minimum wage will rise from 9.60 to 9.82 euros and on July 1 to 10.45 euros. Dulger criticized the proposed law as a breach of the government’s promise that “the minimum wage commission is the guardian of the minimum wage and not politics,” he said.
