Source: Die Linke “The federal government continues to drive on sight with the corona grants for SMEs and self-employed people, although the pandemic has already lasted nine months. Altmaier and Scholz put huge sums of billions in the shop window, but then make it impossible for entrepreneurs to apply for the funds. The November aid is only ready to go at the end of November, while the partial lockdown is being extended at the same time. December aid? Perhaps. This lack of plan is hard to beat. That does not create confidence in the companies concerned, but above all frustration, “comments Klaus Ernst, economic policy spokesman for the DIE LINKE parliamentary group and chairman of the Committee for Economic Affairs and Energy in the German Bundestag, the hacking over the Corona aid. Ernst continues: “An effective outflow of funds would be created by allowing companies to apply for the bridging aid directly again. In view of a quota for investigation proceedings for abuse of the emergency aid of less than 0.2 percent, the argument that there would then be too much abuse goes nowhere. Likewise, the controversial question of the fictitious entrepreneur’s wages was sat out. Scholz and Altmaier still owe a clear announcement as to whether the people should apply for Hartz IV or whether the subsidies for livelihoods for SMEs and self-employed people will come. “
