According to a study, families and people at risk of poverty benefit most from the measures envisaged in the coalition agreement of the Ampel parties.

Among other things, the planned increase in the minimum wage and the basic child security would ensure that at least 2.4 million people would fall out of the risk of poverty, according to a calculation by the Center for European Economic Research (ZEW), from which the "Süddeutsche Zeitung" quotes.

This included 1.4 million children.

According to the ZEW calculation, households with a maximum annual income of 20,000 can expect 700 euros more per year.

For couples with children, the plus will be on average 3000 euros per year, for single parents 2300 euros.

According to the calculation, singles and childless couples can only expect 300 or 700 euros more.

The ZEW calculations only cover those parts of the coalition agreement whose direct financial impact on individual population groups can be quantified.

The financial consequences for individuals due to policy areas such as climate protection and education are left out.

A change in the effects calculated by the ZEW through the coalition agreement would result if the Federal Constitutional Court should tilt the solidarity surcharge for top earners.

In this case, the highest income segment of the population would be better off than parts of the middle class.

The FDP demands a complete abolition of the solos.
