Germany: Greens propose integration solidarity tax
The deputy chairman of the Greens fraction in the German parliament, Josef Winkler, told the Neuen Osnabrücker Zeitung that the solidarity tax for the former East Germany should be gradually changed into an 'integration-solidarity tax' for integration and education.
Winkler: We should invest in the integration of the new population groups. Part of the solidarity tax should be spent on better education and language education for migrants.
Winkler wants mother-tongue education for Turkish children and other migrant children all over Germany. "If you don't speak your mother-tongue well, according to researchers you will also have problems learning German."
