Committee on Labour and Social Affairs
Pensions and the labour market are, in brief, the two main fields dealt with by the Committee on Labour and Social Affairs, and both pose tough problems. The pension system is facing the greatest test in its history and unemployment is at a high level. Germany’s welfare systems and labour market are in urgent need of further reform. Hardly anything worries citizens as much as these issues. This makes the Committee’s work all the more of a challenge and underlines its great significance for Germany’s future and internal peace.
