Germany: New SPD leader joins May Day protests in Koblenz

The first female leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) Andrea Nahles joined International Workers' Day demonstrations in Koblenz on Sunday. Nahles used the march to criticise Health Minister Jens Spahn for not concentrating on his brief. «He talks about Muslims, he talks about Hartz-IV [unemployment benefits], but he has to do his job, dear friends. There is enough to do in... Еще healthcare,» Nahles told a group of trade unionists. The former Labour Minister also said care work deserved better pay and conditions. «12 euros an hour is not enough for this hard job,» she underlined. Nahles became the SPD's first female leader, after the party suffered its worst loss since 1933 in last September's parliamentary elections. Nahles's priority is to rebuild support for Germany's oldest party.
