'If you don't take a job as a prostitute, we can stop your benefits'

Telegraph News 'If you don't take a job as a prostitute, we can stop your benefits': "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"

So I guess if a married man is unemployed, he could be forced to become a "boy for rent", or lose his unemployment benefits. Germany is just a step below nazism again.
