Von Hartz zur Agenda 2010
Die Realpolitik im "aktivierenden Sozialstaat"
Schlagworte:Hartz IV, Sozialstaat, Sozialpolitik, Deutschland
In the beginning of their term the Red-Green German Government has resolved to adapt overall policy up to the model (Leitbild) of an "activating welfare state". By means of the recent labour market and social policy reforms according to "Hartz-Commission" and "Agenda 2010" we can see the effects of this Leitbild: a roll back of social rights in favour of individual responsibilities and duties and a redefinition of workers to customers.
