this is a 1:1 copy of the new german 'Arbeitslosengeld II' which was introduced in 2005

Jobcenter, sanctions, same shit damned

The Hartz IV reform was voted in by the Bundestag on December 16, 2003 and by the Bundesrat on July 9, 2004; taking effect by January 1, 2005. This part of the reform brought together the former unemployment benefits for long term unemployed ('Arbeitslosenhilfe') and the welfare benefits ('Sozialhilfe'), leaving them both at approximately the lower level of the former 'Sozialhilfe'. The current (September 2009) level for a single person is 374 per month (known as the Regelsatz, raised to 382 per month beginning 2013[1]) plus the cost of 'adequate' housing and health care. Couples can receive benefits for each partner including their children.

Prior to 2005, between 12 and 36 months (depending upon the claimant's age and work history) of their full unemployment benefit (60 to 67% of the previous net salary) were followed by Arbeitslosenhilfe (unemployment assistance, 53 to 57% of the last net salary). Since 2008, eligibility for the full unemployment benefit (renamed Arbeitslosengeld in 2005 and commonly referred to as Arbeitslosengeld I in everyday German to contrast it with the lower benefits discussed below), has been restricted to 12 months in general, 15 months for those aged 50 or older, 18 months for those 55 or older and 24 months for those 58 or older. This is now followed by (usually much lower) Arbeitslosengeld II (Hartz IV) benefits if the claimant meets the requirements (see next paragraph).

it looks basically like the same thing. the longer you are out of work, the more they can legally treat you like a piece of shit and make you jump through hoops to get your measly little bit of money to survive on.

meanwhile corrupt MPs exploit the expenses system with impunity and use tax payers money to buy thousands of pounds of luxuries! 5a
