Source: DGB – BundesvorstandPM 066 – 11.11.2020Annual report of the council of experts Discussion about the end of aid measures completely premature The new annual report of the council of experts (SVR) meets with criticism from the German trade union federation. “Anyone who is already talking about budget consolidation and an allegedly necessary cut in government spending is playing with fire,” said DGB board member Stefan Körzell on Wednesday in Berlin . “It would have been important to give a clear rejection of an early debt reduction and to extend the repayment of the corona debts over significantly longer periods of time. The debt brake must be suspended beyond 2021 and also fundamentally reformed. But this is exactly where the council of experts pinches. It is regrettable that the council of experts remains in many places with its market-believing and anti-social perspective. His criticism of the European Posting of Workers Directive shows that the majority of the Council apparently still wants unbridled competition in Europe, in which no stop is put to a race to the bottom in wages and working conditions. The usual demand to link the retirement age to life expectancy aims at further pension cuts and completely ignores the reality of the vast majority of employees. “
