If you want to do an internship in the emergency service with the Berlin fire brigade, you have to pay. The firefighters demand 1456 euros for a practical experience. The fire service declined to comment further on the regulation.
Paramedics, like medical staff, are generally few and far between. And at least the Berlin fire brigade does not exactly contribute to remedying this shortage of skilled workers so easily. Not only does she not pay her interns any expense allowance, she rather asks them to pay.
“This internship is subject to payment,” writes the capital’s fire department on its website. According to the pay schedule in the fire brigade’s pay decree, prospective paramedics who are already in training have to pay EUR 1,456.00 for their internship. The sum is to be paid before the start of the practical phase. The internship itself lasts 160 hours. According to the fire brigade’s application portal, applicants would have to be prepared for 12-hour shifts.
The state chairman of the CDU Berlin, Kai Wegner, is outraged that prospective medical specialists in the internship reach their physical and mental limits and even have to pay for it. He credits this grievance to the red-green-red coalition. “The SPD, the Greens and the Left must not rip off those who are being trained to save lives,” he says to “Bild” and advocates subsidies for the capital’s fire brigade.
Incidentally, when asked by “Bild”, she did not want to comment directly on the topic raised. The organization wanted to provide a “comprehensive answer” afterwards. According to the tabloid, no response was received a day later.
Bushido and his former business partner Arafat Abou-Chaker once bought a park-like property with three villas in the Berlin suburb of Kleinmachnow. Two belonged to the clan leader, one to the rapper. Now Bushido’s luxury property has been foreclosed on. The 21-year-old son of the clan leader was awarded the contract.
Actually, the central bankers of the Fed want to avoid surprises. But are the ever-increasing consumer prices putting pressure on the Federal Reserve? How can inflation be stopped? The central bankers are counting on a rate hike that has it all.
The head of the network agency expects gas prices to continue to rise and strong back payments – he expects “shock waves”. There are not only appeals to save energy, demands for relief from tenants are also getting louder.
