Am Rand der Gesellschaft

So lebt es sich mit Hartz IV in Berlin

Was machen Menschen ohne Geld, ohne Arbeit, ohne Zukunft? Versäuft die Unterschicht tatsächlich das Geld, das ihr der Staat zum Überleben bereit stellt? In dieser Woche ist die Debatte über die sozial Schwächsten wieder aufgeflammt. Morgenpost Online hat sich in Berlin umgeschaut.

Uwe weiß Bescheid. Der Mann mit dem Schnauzbart steht im fahlen Neonlicht vor einer Batterie Zigaretten, vor seiner hohen Theke liegt der übliche süße Krimskrams: Kaugummi, Schokoriegel, Gummibärchen. Wenn jemand in seinen Tankstellen-Shop im Berliner Stadtteil Wedding kommt und erst mal „Hallo Meister“ sagt, ist für ihn alles klar: Der kriegt Hartz IV, hat die Kohle schon verjubelt und will jetzt was auf Vorschuss.
