Immer mehr Erwerbstätige empfinden ihr Einkommen als ungerecht

Seit einiger Zeit mehren sich die Stimmen, die für Deutschland eine "soziale Schieflage" konstatieren und im Namen sozialer Gerechtigkeit Korrekturen fordern. So haben die Reallöhne in den vergangenen Jahren stagniert, teilweise sind sie sogar zurückgegangen. Zugleich kann eine Zunahme von Einkommensungleichheit beobachtet werden. Diese Entwicklung spiegelt sich auch in der subjektiven Bewertung der ...

Empfinden die Erwerbstätigen in Deutschland ihre Einkommen als gerecht?

In der sozial- und arbeitsmarktpolitischen Reformdebatte in Deutschland nimmt die Forderung nach einer Erhöhung der Ungleichheit der Einkommensverteilung zur Durchsetzung des Prinzips der Leistungsgerechtigkeit eine ebenso zentrale wie kontroverse Rolle ein. Die Vorschläge zielen etwa auf die Einführung eines Niedriglohnsektors, eine Senkung des Grundsicherungsniveaus sowie auf eine Verminderung der ...

A Comparison of Earnings Justice throughout Europe: Widespread Approval in Germany for Income Distribution According to Need and Equity

In Germany, Younger, Better Educated Persons, and Lower Income Groups Are More Likely to Be in Favor of Unconditional Basic Income

Representative survey results have shown a stable approval rate for implementing unconditional basic income of between 45 and 52 percent in Germany since 2016/17. In European comparison, this approval rate is low. Younger, better educated persons, and those at risk of poverty support the concept of unconditional basic income in Germany.

Inequality of Earnings in Germany Generally Accepted but Low Incomes Considered Unfair

Earnings differences are a recurring topic of public discussion in Germany.

This applies above all to the middle and lower ...

Perceived Income Justice Depends on the Economy

At least half of all employees in Germany described their wages in all three survey years under consideration here - 2005, 2007, and 2009 - as just. Still, major changes occurred over this period in how people perceived their earnings. Data from the Socio- Economic Panel (SOEP) Study show that after an increase in income dissatisfaction in 2007, the percentage of the population who consider their income ...

Wages in Eastern Germany Still Considered More Unjust Than in the West

Almost twenty-five years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, far more eastern Germans are unhappy with their income than western Germans. In 2013, around 44 percent of employed eastern Germans rated their earnings as unjust compared with approximately one-third in western Germany. Although the east-west gap has been diminishing since 2005—to around 12 percent in 2013—this is not because eastern Germans ...

Reunification: An Economic Success Story

People’s expectations after the fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago and of reunification in 1990 were huge. The government promised to create “flourishing landscapes” within a few years.
