The German government has announced a new package of measures that should relieve citizens and help them meet the ever-higher costs due to inflation. They provide for a one-time payment of amounts between 800 and 1500 euros.
The sums that the German government will allocate as aid for high heating prices are intended primarily for the socially weak. In addition, families with children will also receive one-time bonuses. There will also be payments for pensioners and students. The pandemic program to reduce the working hours of the staff of companies that are not coping with the crisis is being extended.
According to Chancellor Scholz, the package of measures is precisely measured and there will be help for everyone.
Economy Minister Robert Habeck announced that Germany will enter the winter prepared. Gas reservoirs are now almost full, reaching a level of 80%.
The money that the state allocates for the needy will be in the order of a double-digit billion. Yesterday the program for a ticket of only 9 euros for trains throughout the country ended. Finance Minister Christian Lindner is considering how to extend it.
