There are different suggestions how to reduce unemployment in Germany. Some suggest the state should introduce a massive employment-creation program, financed by higher taxes and a higher state borrowing.
Others want to improve the general conditions for businesses, such as flexible regulations for working time and wages or tax reductions for businesses, to achieve that the companies take on more people again.
