Minimum wages and additional annual leave in the nursing care sector

The Federal Statistical Office predicts that there will be seven million people in Germany aged 80 and over by 2040. This is a clear indication that the already high demand for nursing staff will increase even further due to demographic change. That is why we are continuing to strive for attractive working conditions in the care sector. To make nursing an attractive profession, we need one thing above all else: quality jobs. The minimum working conditions laid down by law, based on the recommendations of the Nursing Commission, are particularly important in this respect. These minimum working conditions in the care sector are now being updated to a new standard - with the Sixth Ordinance on Mandatory Working Conditions. It not only mandates an entitlement to additional holidays for the care sector, but also significantly increased minimum wages for various employees. This is an important signal that good care is valued in Germany, and it relieves care workers of the burden of higher consumer prices.
