If you don't take a job as a prostitute

we can stop your benefits...

Ah el grandioso servicio de busqueda de trabajo. El problema es que en Alemania la prostutición fue legalizada hace 2 años... lo que significa que si quieres recoger beneficios de desempleo, tienes que demostrar que no encuentras trabajo, y ellos te mandan a entrevistas de trabajo de gente buscando tu "perfil" y si tu perfil encaja (hehehe encaja) con la industria del sexo... you be fucked (literalmente)

A 25-year-old waitress who turned down a job providing "sexual services'' at a brothel in Berlin faces possible cuts to her unemployment benefit under laws introduced this year.

Prostitution was legalised in Germany just over two years ago and brothel owners – who must pay tax and employee health insurance – were granted access to official databases of jobseekers.

The waitress, an unemployed information technology professional, had said that she was willing to work in a bar at night and had worked in a cafe.

She received a letter from the job centre telling her that an employer was interested in her "profile'' and that she should ring them. Only on doing so did the woman, who has not been identified for legal reasons, realise that she was calling a brothel.

Under Germany's welfare reforms, any woman under 55 who has been out of work for more than a year can be forced to take an available job – including in the sex industry – or lose her unemployment benefit. Last month German unemployment rose for the 11th consecutive month to 4.5 million, taking the number out of work to its highest since reunification in 1990.
