German Pub Sets Up Job Advice Desk

Recommended Posts


BERLIN, Sept 10 (Reuters Life!) - A Berlin pub has set up an advice desk to help the long-term unemployed get back on their feet. Many regulars to the "Kindl Klause" in Berlin's southern Neu-Koelln district live off Germany's minimum jobless benefit, known as Hartz IV, so offering free advice on how to find work again seemed logical, the bar's boss Michael Hasucha said.

"About 98 percent of my clients are regulars and every fourth person in Neu-Koelln is on Hartz IV...so it made sense," he said. "As far as I know there's no other one like it."

The point is not to get drunk, he added. "Most people seeking advice just have a coffee or a cola then go," he said.

The desk, which operates between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m on Fridays, is run by two social workers who once stopped off at the bar after work and got into conversation with locals.

I think it could catch on here (if there are any pubs left).
