Commenting on the Chancellor's statement, Employers' President Dr. Rainer Dulger said:
Berlin, 24 March 2021 "There is no blueprint for managing this crisis. As an employer, I have had to make many decisions - some of them difficult - and some of them I have had to take back. That is difficult.
I have all the more respect for the fact that the Chancellor has withdrawn the decision. The Chancellor's courageous decision demonstrates leadership."
