COVID-19 and labor market relations:
give the German Government a fixed role!

It is hard to predict the economic consequences of the pandemic, but it will surely hit the German and the Dutch labor market. How could the pandemic’s impact on the labor market be minimized? In his Expert Statement, Meüs van der Poel asks German politicians to be more courageous and to take a closer look at the Netherlands: “As in the Netherlands, give the German Federal Government a fixed role in labor market relations! German politicians should have the courage to move from dual consultations to triangular labor market relations. No guts, no glory!”
