In case you ever wondered

If the government was trying to make whores out of women:

Once one of the most generous systems in Europe, Germany’s unemployment program has been reformed to require those out of work to take jobs for which they are qualified, or lose benefits. In the case of women, females below the age of 55 who have been out of work for a year or more must take any available job offered.

The full legalization of prostitution two years ago – with brothel owners now paying taxes and employee health insurance – has created an awkward situation at German job centers where employers can access the official government database of those seeking work, reports the London Telegraph.

When women battled for the “right” to enter the workforce, I don’t think this was quite what they had in mind.
