What initiates over the States is known for a long time, underpins a new report by the North Rhine-Westphalia labour Minister Karl-Josef Laumann (CDU) now has presented.

Also in dealing with the Corona-crisis in the case of Tönnies and the excessive restrictions on the population have failed Laschet. "It is clear that this Disaster has two names: Laschet and Tönnies."

Laumann sees a need for changes in Federal law, to workers ' housing outside of the pandemic control. Also NRW Economics Minister Andreas Pinkwart (FDP), insists on reforms.
