5-member German family receives less in benefits than family of 4 migrants

Thomas Hetze, a German with his family of 5 who's paid into the social system for years, was recently told he's only entitled to 900 euros per month by the German government.  

Currently a migrant family of 4 is entitled to 1350 euros without ever having paid into the social systems. The UN Social Council found large problems in the application of human rights in Germany.  

Especially the elderly, who are living in inhumane conditions due to a lack of personnel. The report goes on to talk about a total of about 2.55 million kids, who are currently living in poverty.  

Experts say bureaucracy and a lack of information are keeping parents from receiving the benefits to which they're entitled.  

In total, 1.2 million employed people currently have to rely on benefits to get by. The UN report asks for a raise in the minimum wage and a consistent application of it to solve the problems.  

Recently, the German government took in hundreds of thousands of low or unskilled workers during the refugee crisis of 2015, adding a further burden on the social systems and causing a social rift.
