A request of the Bundestag deputies Sabine Zimmermann (the Left) is now dealing with these multiple employees. Their number has doubled, according to the Federal employment Agency from 2003 to 2019, to about 3.5 million. In the same period, the total number of employees increased by only 20 percent. The most rapid proportional increase in multiple employment, the Federal Agency and documented for the years up to 2011 of 4.4 percent of all employees percent to 8 percent.

This richly ambivalent German job miracle has his parents in the former red-green Federal government and its Agenda 2010. The brought, in addition to the authoritarian discipline of the work in the Hartz IV Regime, the introduction of the I-AGs and especially the so-called mini-jobs. The so-created low-wage sector was, if you will, a resounding success. The only question is, for whom. The trade Union close to the Hans-Böckler-Foundation analyzed last year, the social structure of the multiple workers, the greatest part of which must provide at the lower end of the wage scale.

The data material of the Foundation, confirmed the assumption that women and people with immigrant background in employment are disproportionately represented in precarious act. In the following, these will have to reckon with lower qualification and opportunities for advancement and a lower level of pensions as a better - paid full-time employees. The organization of employees, degree of part-time, with several employers, rather low, is not surprising. Accordingly, the weak, the unfolding is the end of pressure in collective bargaining, provided that they take place at all.

The call of Sabine Zimmermann, the minimum wage in a first step, promptly at 12 today, is so convincing logic. The same applies to the need for legal enforcement of the Transfer of marginal part-time employment in a social security contributions and secure existence of the employment relationship. Government intervention created the current Situation, and on the same level, the corrections must be made.

everything replaced but not a long-term strategy for the enforcement of the interests of the wage-dependent population is employed majority. This would be necessary, not least the criticism approaches from the much-maligned Identity politics not as antagonistic bugbear, but to take seriously and engage. Because of that, for example, racism and sexism manifest themselves in tangible economic deprivation, it is now an empirical fact. So it is not a question of where to find the subjects of social struggles are.

to find For these people a speech, and to develop offerings that demonstrate a solidarity-based perspective for all, especially for the most Marginalized, would be the foremost task for unions and the left gerierende parties alike. Therefore, To work colleagues and Enjoyed*on the inside. There is much to do.
