A German teenager was left ‘totally horrified’ after a job centre offered her work in a brothel, it has been reported.
The 19-year-old woman, a trained housekeeper who had been looking for work since November, was offered a job serving drinks at one of the biggest brothels in Augsburg, in Bavaria.
We had this same story (different people but same story) a few years back.
Yes, prostitution is legal in Germany. Yes, jobcentres do offer jobs in brothels to the jobless. No, they do not offer jobs as prostitutes. Only a the support staff: serving drinks, cleaning and so on. And no, no one loses their unemployment pay if they don’t wish to take such a job.
Prostitution is legal but it’s not mandatory.
