So much for letting German firms hire the best managers
Germany’s Social Democrats are preparing a demand for equal distribution of jobs for women as part of a coalition deal with Chancellor Angela Merkel, adding to the party’s list of requirements going into talks this week.
The SPD women’s group, which represents 42 percent of the seats won by the party in the Sept. 22 elections, plans to push for half of all SPD government and parliamentary posts to be held by women. It also aims to demand binding legislation to get more women into management positions at top German companies. . . . .
