Höhere Richtwerte bei Hartz-IV-Beziehern und Sozialrentnern notwendig

Die Linke Fraktion im Regionalverband Saarbrücken hat sich klar und deutlich gegen jegliche Versuche gewandt, die Wohnkosten von Sozialleistungsbeziehern pauschalieren zu wollen. Solche Pauschalen, so die Mitglieder des Sozialausschusses, Manfred Klasen und Mike Botzet, richteten sich im Ergebnis immer gegen die Betroffenen.
