The Insm gives the low wage a greater name

If you want to sell unpopulares, you have to come up with something. Politicians and lobbyists can like to come up with new terms that should distract from the true core of the problem. Then, Wars become humanitarian interventions, from the stock data retention the minimum data retention and the unpopular Hartz IV should be given a better image by a new name. The new social market economy initiative, which is financed by the employer’s associations of the metal and electrical industry, now suggests the low-wage: That’s actually an entry-level salary, finds the insm and tries to prove that with a suitable opinion.

After all, the low-wage sector, which was once massively expanded under the red-green government of Gerhard Schroder (SPD), is more and more in the negative headlines. The low-wage sector growth and splits the labor market. Only recently, a study by the Institute for Work and Qualification (IAQ) of the University of Duisburg-Essen showed that every fun of Germans works in the low-wage area, with the number of people who are in this area in this area within ten years by 2, 3 million has risen. The study pays all people working for an hourly wage of 9.50 euros in West Germany, to the low-wage receptionists. In the East, you have fixed the border with only 6.87 euros.

Of the low tempering affected are not, above all, gerinqualified, but many young people. Every second full-time division until 24 works in the low-wage area. In addition, the proportion of people with a vocational training or an academic degree in international comparison is high.

Messages about the growing inequality in the loves, the unequal distribution of the wealthy in Germany and net salon bubes between 16 and 22 percent within the last ten years of the low earners ("Qualifying wage differences") Worries far into the center of society for uncertainty.

The resulting debate wants the insm with a brisant opinion "Emergable and fertilized", How to explain Insm Business Hubertus Pellengahr in Berlin. The report, which was created by the Institute of German Business Koln (IW) for the INSM, starts the low-wage limit at almost nine euros hours of hours and ames that the share of employees in the low-wage sector in 2009 was 22.4 percent. As a data basis, the IW is the socio-economic panel (SOEP). However, if only the population is considered in the working age of 15 to 64 years, the low-wage share in the acquisition activity between 2004 and 2009 has risen from nine to 13 percent, so Holger Schafer of the IW.

It concludes Pellengahr, be the fear of the middle class, in the "so-called low-wage area" slip, empirically not durable. After all, the low-wage sector had not grown at the expense of normal earners, but by people who have not previously been busy. Since it is also many likely more likely to rise from the low-wage sector in the normal earner area than vice versa, low-wages are mainly introduction.

Low wage as an alleged springboard

The IW also comes to the conclusion that more than 80 percent of employees in the low-wage sector has at least one closed vocational training, the proportion of qualified force is high. But sheep is particularly speaking in this context "Falsequalifications", because only a little more than half of the lowroom has been used for their procurement a vocational training, or work in occupations, for which they have no education. "Just" Around one third of the low-wage workforce work in the profession, for which they are also trained, so sheeper.

In addition, sheep explained that there is no connection between low-level and income poverty. After all, there are often other sources of income in the household, such as the partner’s earned income or government transfer services. Therefore, only 16 percent of the lowroom runners are poorly risked, while the unemployed is 60 percent. "There is no significant problem of poverty in Germany despite work", claimed sheeper.

He also stressed the promotion opportunities offering the low-wage sector. 24 percent were created within a year the rise in a better paid work, so sheeper. However, the opportunity reached the rise from the low-wage sector until the period of qualifications is completed. Who is misqualified, which is supposed to understand his low-cost job as an opportunity to continue training and strain accordingly, so the message.

That there are now numerous professional groups, for example in the hairdressing trade or in the elderly care, who have no chance to have a good wage despite completed training, one sees neither at the INSM nor at the IW. Every job is better than no job, explained Pellengehahr, addressed the example of the friseuse in East Germany, and visibly nervous on his watch. The inquiries of the journalists obviously do not like him. In addition, the Insm business drivers, the job will be a springboard if the friseuse further qualify.

Even with the falling real beans, the IW has no problem. If wage reuse farming drove to more work, and it give it information, then you just have to consider what is more important to us.

This continues to try Inserm and IW to advertise atmosphere for a one-sided export-oriented policy that neglects domestic demand as a second pillar. Especially in the opposite debt crisis, this is a strategy that is not only at the expense of the working population, but ultimately also could give the economy even rough damage.
