Germany Makes Prostitution An Obligation

Ties Acceptance of Job To Insurance

NOTE BIEN: Readers, I know this headline is shocking. And it does seem unbelievable, doesn't it? Well, there's a reason for that. We've just been informed that IT ISN'T TRUE.

Prostitution is now legal in Germany.

Therefore, any woman under 55 who has been out of work for more than a year can be forced to take any available job – including in the sex industry – or lose her unemployment benefits.

The government considered making brothels an exception on moral grounds, but decided that it would be too difficult to distinguish them from bars.

As a result, job centres must treat employers looking for a prostitute in the same way as any other company.

And job centres that refuse to cut the benefits of people who turn down a job face legal action from the brothel.

Unemployed women who had worked in call centres have been offered jobs on telephone sex lines.

And an unemployed information technology professional received a letter from her job centre telling her that an employer was interested in her "profile'' and that she should call him. On doing so, she found that she was calling a brothel.

She turned down a job providing sexual services in Berlin and now faces cuts to her unemployment benefits.
