In Welcome to the Food Forum
As Minister of Labor (2007-2009) during the first Merkel government, with the alliance of the CDU and the SPD, he played an important role as an expert during the financial crisis, which included the introduction of the short-time work mobile phone number list subsidy, with which the State guarantees workers in times of great crisis (2008 financial crisis, 2020 covid-19 pandemic) 60% of their salary. In this way he was able to recover political capital. In 2011, Scholz returned to mobile phone number list Hamburg, where he was elected mayor and governed from 2011 to 2018. In the 2011 elections, he achieved something almost utopian for the SPD at the time: an absolute majority. In a second term he governed Hamburg with the Greens. His housing construction policy was important in making it possible for lower-income groups to have access to a place to live in the big city. But the Hamburg period ended mobile phone number list lackluster. At the G-20 summit, during the summer of 2017, street brawls reached high levels of violence. Scholz made a miscalculation, since he had guaranteed the townspeople that they would not have to worry about security. After the 2017 parliamentary elections, in which the SPD was defeated, there was supposed to be no new "grand coalition" between the SPD and the mobile phone number list CDU. On the one hand, it was unpopular with the population, but on the other hand, the SPD had lost its social democratic profile during the years in which it co-governed with Merkel. However, there was a third round of negotiations, as the so-called "Jamaica" alliance between the CDU, the Greens and the liberal FDP failed to materialize. Then again the SPD joined the Merkel government. In the new red and black government, Scholz became deputy chancellor and finance minister. He defended the zero-debt policy of his predecessor, Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU), much to the chagrin of many Social Democrats who wanted more investment in transport infrastructure, education, health, etc., but also from European partners who were waiting for a change of course to stimulate growth and jobs. However, with the pandemic, this attitude changed.
