DGB-Chef Sommer

"Hartz IV tritt den Wert der Arbeit mit Füßen"

Wenn es um die Hartz-IV-Reform geht, wird DGB-Chef Michael Sommer richtig wütend. Am Tag der Arbeit kann er nach Herzenslust schimpfen.

Michael Sommer rennt die Treppe hinauf. Auf seinem Hemd, unterhalb des Kragens, ist ein dunkler Fleck. Eigentlich war er nur ganz klein. Doch nachdem der DGB-Chef mit seiner sporadischen Reinigung gescheitert ist, ist das Hemd nicht mehr zu retten. Der 59-Jährige lacht, er findet das selbst lustig. Ernst ist ihm aber, dass er mit diesem Fleck keine Rede halten kann. „Der Wolfgang muss kommen“, sagt er. Das ist sein Fahrer. Im Kofferraum liegt immer ein Ersatzhemd.
