Mrs. Dreyer , has thanked the SPD at the new CDU leader?
I really don't see why we should do this.
Mrs Kramp-Karrenbauer do much to make the SPD more visible, by wages in reply to the French President Macron a more social Europe with fair minimum reject. The should be happy the SPD.
This only shows very clear, that the CDU has a significantly different attitude to Europe than we are.daily mirror tomorrow location Free
to order, you will be Happy in the end?
it's not About that. The SPD stands for a more social Europe. That is where we differ significantly from the CDU. On our Europe Convention on Saturday, we will adopt our guidelines.
you and your party speak now of the "social Dimension" of Europe. That sounds kind of cloud-cuckoo-land, what does that mean?
Very specifically, is about the topic of minimum wage. It may not be the case that in Europe, people below the poverty line have to work.
with regard to the minimum wage, the SPD in Germany, twelve euros. Is that supposed to be the goal in all European countries?
no, it's about wages that are not below the poverty threshold in the respective countries, and to social Standards.
Many Western European countries have a higher minimum wage than Germany, the Problem of the Eastern European States are to be paid, and often not even four Euro. On a SPD event, a trade unionist said, these countries are the slaves for the Rest of Europe. Do you share the view?
It confirms our view that there must be minimum social standards. The theme of social Europe is for the SPD not new, but it had been too little progress.
In Berlin-Neukölln, at the base, where it is prepared on the European election campaign , said to me, you have to be honest in the street campaign, and the Germans say that Standards for minimum wages in Europe to help first time only the people in Bulgaria or Romania. Nevertheless, the people of the SPD is to choose, is it?
The issue has but two sides. To a German farmer say to me, representative, that you have to pay minimum wages, but in other Eastern European countries, much less is paid. This is not justice, that is why we need mandatory Standards, in order to reduce the distance between the member countries. The other side is that low wages are simply undignified and the work done to underestimate. For both we need the minimum wage. But to answer the question, I see it differently: In truth, minimum wages and Standards in other countries, in Germany help.
the European elections for the SPD is also a Test of whether the double objective of the party is: the Union rule and self-renew?
I don't think a lot of it, in elections to much into it to interpret or unnecessary charge. We go very confident in this choice, we have strong top candidates. We are also convinced of our program, because the SPD has found in the social issues, finally back to a clarity, a sense of the citizens. Nevertheless, we know that the SPD was in a big crisis of confidence, which we can't overcome within a few months.
How has the agreement on the welfare state, the paper changed the SPD?
It is more self-confidence in our own ranks to feel. I would say it looks like a small liberation. People are motivated again, and that's fun. Apparently, many well find that the SPD makes it clear again what she stands for.
New self-awareness is a prerequisite for renewal?
Yes, and therefore we have to work for a year, and the result is a very versatile way: New forms of Participation, debate camps, but also a clear social-democratic handwriting, such as the welfare state concept, which separates us politically clear of the Union. Of course, we are not to remember at the end of this renewal process, but the members that We are on a good way.Video 15.03.2019, 13:38 Uhr03:13 Min.The SPD is for young people attractive?
After saying goodbye to Hartz IV the values of the SPD climbed in the polls in the short term, two percent, and now most of the institutions report back to the old values. Why not convinced the new setup of the SPD, the citizens, even though they find the content good?
I am convinced, that we provide sustainable policy and very clear in the matter. Only the way forward. Only in this way, we eliminate the question marks that some of the citizens even in the SPD. We need to communicate well, and again prove that we can make good policy. Such as, for example, with the basic pension or the law on the combating of undeclared work, the Situation will improve, among other things, the package deliverer – this is true to life and close to the people. We give answers to questions that move the people.
What you need to stand by the Union, in turn, to join in the basic pension without a means test?
We need to are nothing. The basic pension is supposed to, it says so in the coalition agreement, to be a hedge in the pension system. And this System is a means test is totally foreign. The mothers ' pension, we have not linked to need. We will negotiate so objectively with the Union.
What are the costs for the new citizens of money and the basic pension?
Hubertus Heil, our Minister of labour, will submit a draft law in which the costs are broken down. But when it comes to these topics, I would like to stress that it is not only about money. Because at the same time, the CDU is proposing that much more money to spend for the discharge of the richest ten percent and the solidarity surcharge. As we say: no, because there is now already a much-too-large Poor-rich divide. It is, therefore, the use of money we have, the SPD wants more justice for the life of many citizens.
