Source: Die Linke “The draft law was announced full-bodied as Social Protection Package III, but will only be delivered as a belated alms letter to those affected in a quarter of a year,” explains Katja Kipping, socio-political spokeswoman for the DIE LINKE parliamentary group in the Bundestag and party chairman, about the Federal Cabinet so-called social protection package III. Kipping continues: “With the one-off payment to basic security recipients, the federal government admits for the first time that those affected by poverty urgently lack the money for hygiene products, electricity and failed school meals. It would have been better if the government could have agreed on a quick and effective remedy. Instead of the pandemic surcharge of 100 euros we have been calling for a year on all social benefits during the entire corona crisis, there is now a one-time total paid out in May Surcharge of 150 euros for the months from January to June 2021. The federal government remains loyal to the pandemic in the second year and acts according to the triad ‘too late, too slow, too half-heartedly’. “
