A German Social Court has ruled that Euro 345 is the amount of rent and welfare payment with which one can live adequately in the country.
The figure is really unbelievably scanty but I can simply say "do not look a gift horse in the mouth"! I think the people on social welfare should realize that living on aid cannot change peoples lives. On the other side, people become desperate to make a change when they are pushed down to the edge. I think the government is just trying to do it with the reforms in the social welfare system. Some Germans prefer social welfare to the low paid physical jobs.
