GES-experts: Minimum wage does not lead to more fairness

Creating Employment

The German parliament has approved the country's first minimum wage, in a vote in the Bundestag on Thursday. The wage will be set at 8.50 euros per hour, which is higher than the equivalent in the US and UK. According to GES-experts, a minimum wage will not lead to more fairness in the labor market. Instead, rising unemployment rates especially of unskilled workers will be the consequence. In order to reduce unemployment and to keep it low, policies should not get in the way of the on-going dynamic adjustment in the labor market, which is a response to the economic development.

What is the GES?

The GES Process The GES is a solution forum attracting world leaders to generate solutions for the most important global problems.

It presents a neutral, creative space in which we can think afresh about tackling global problems across national, cultural, social and religious divides.

Hallmarks are that it is research-based and solution-oriented.

The GES 2013 takes place from October 1st to 2nd in Kiel, Germany!

See how GES solutions can be implemented: CARE Water and Sanitation in Zimbabwe

CARE Water and Sanitation in Zimbabwe

The strategic goal of CARE's Water and Sanitation program is to enhance poor communities through equitable access, efficient use and sustainable management of limited and dwindling water resources. CARE also places emphasis on women in all its water work because impoverished women are disproportionately excluded from decisions regarding water's allocation and management. CARE provides women with equal decision-making power by including them in discussions on water and sanitation on the local, municipal and state levels.
