Annegret-Kramp Karrenbauer is under special observation. The CDU leader is not two months in office. Since they have to prove themselves before the party. Now she has received from the economic wing kudos. "Off to a good Start," said Carsten linen of the man, head of the SME Association of the Union, this week.
"The SPD is quite relaxed"
received after a visit to the employers ' Association. There she stood in front of the cameras and showed a clear edge against the SPD. The CDU-Chairman, announced the abolition of "property, plant and groundless temporary" work contracts, in peace and quiet in the coalition Committee to discuss. So you dampened the hope of the social Democrats for a quick end of such employment relationships. The Comrades had negotiated in the autumn, after a tough battle in the coalition agreement. Now, Kramp-Karrenbauer want to roll up the thing, apparently, once again from the front. They also introduced the abolition of the solidarity surcharge, as well as tax cuts. The SPD rejects both.
The social Democrats were caught off guard by Kramp cart Builder advances. You have taken "surprised to note," it says in the SPD group in the Bundestag. To a public replica of the CDU Head of the social Democrats, but no one rings. Rather they wanted to wegschweigen the topic "" it is said. The Comrades want to let Kramp cart Builder's challenge fizzle out. "The SPD is very relaxed," says a spokeswoman.
So no one finds out in the Willy-Brandt-Haus, the CDU leader from the public that it is a long compromise is suddenly in question. It was time, Yes, until the next coalition Committee, stated in the SPD group. The subject "to be agreed", says a spokeswoman.
Grand coalition compromise is not feasible?
The labor lawyer Ulrich price it correctly, the point in the coalition to reconsider the contract for "property for no reason with a time limit" again. "The case is being reopened again, is not so wrong," says the law Professor of the University of Cologne. What is the Union and the SPD in the past year, is much too complicated to enforce.
"We want to abolish the abuse of fixed-term contracts", - stated in the coalition agreement. "Employers with more than 75 employees" are to only "and that it is not to be limited to a maximum of 2.5 percent of the workforce property, plant and groundless". A company that exceeds this rate, should only be allowed to complete open-ended contracts.
price legally find questionable: "Like the should be designed, because you can just shake the head." The labour law expert proposes a simple solution: He wants to ban property, plant and gratuitous limitation. "But you should extend the trial period to one year."
Hubertus Heil wants would submit a draft law
Whether the SPD and the trade unions go along with it? According to Kramp-Karrenbauer, the end of the property, plant and groundless limitation in the coalition negotiations was a "massive demand" of the was SPD. The Federal Minister of labour, Hubertus Heil (SPD), in particular, a draft law to develop. Present he wants. him in the first half of this year For the social Democrats, the issue is a heart issue. You yourself have introduced in the property, gratuitous expiration in 2001, under Chancellor Gerhard Schröder (SPD). Now you want to make the former decision reversed. "Arbitrary limits we push back," says healing.

The political scientist Barbara Ried müller thinks it's badly needed: a "fixed-term contracts often at the expense of young people. For the more difficult entry to the profession.“ In times of shortage of skilled workers, the property was gratuitous limit on a "counter-productive measure," says the Professor to the FU Berlin. According to the Institute for labour and occupational research, in 2017, around 1.6 million people were employed on a temporary basis. The rate of property was groundless limitation in the public service, 2.2 percent, in the private sector they amounted to 4.4 percent.
The CDU would keep everything the same. New cars want the Union in the tax legislation: According to the will of the party boss Kramp-Karrenbauer of the abolition of the solos, she also wants to let the tax cuts check. For SPD-ears that would sound like a provocation. But one hears of prominent social Democrats so far: nothing.
employers are satisfied with AKK
warns that The social policy expert Ried müller, an abolition of the Solis would bring the False relief. "People with 50,000 euros, and twice a year treat income the same, is unjust," she says. In accordance with the principle of equal shares, the government should relieve the burden on specific groups – such as lone mothers. "Occasions for a tax reform, there is enough," says Ried müller.
From the point of view of the economy representative of the views of less taxes sounds especially tempting, as it has announced Kramp-karrenbauer. Employer President Ingo Kramer praised the CDU leader. "We are very pleased with how the Staff panel at the top of the CDU has developed," he said. "We understand Kramp-Karrenbauer as someone who understands the economy and for economic uses."

So it has attenuated may be doubts as to your Person, you could be like your Saarland regional Association of the social is politically rather on the left. Such concerns, it has cleared well out of the way.
