BDA Managing Director Steffen Kampeter explains on the passed Citizen's Income Act:
Berlin, November 10, 2022. "The citizen's income bill passed by the traffic lights tears down the proven balance between promoting and demanding. We are suffering from a labor shortage in Germany. So more alimentation and less activation is the wrong way here. Our goal in times of many crises should be: People need to get out of basic welfare - and into work. We should also always keep in mind: Social benefits are earned by the working part of the population. So the citizen's income must also be fair for those who finance it."
