Bavarian party demands equal pay for men and women

Bavarian party demands equal pay for men and women

Thomas dotzler has been a member of the bavarian party for many years and fights side by side with the party for a better health policy, for equal rights for men and women, and for a better refugee policy.
The most recent vote estimates in the bamberg electoral district currently assume around 1.5 percent votes for the bavarian party (bp). What can’t stop bamberg BP candidate thomas dotzler (51) from campaigning relentlessly every day?. For the bbc’s chief secretary a. D. Is sure that the current political direction must change a lot. Especially in the areas of health care policy, domestic security, taxes and finances, marriage and family, and refugee policy.
"In healthcare, we want less bureaucracy for hospitals and insurers. We want to counteract the migration of specialists because they earn more abroad by recruiting more students, in order to ensure the need for specialists in the long term as well.", dotzler shows himself combative. It is urgently necessary that nurses in nursing homes receive better working conditions and adequate pay. "It cannot be that profit is made on the backs of those who stand up for the sick and the weak." Important to him but also more participation of people with disabilities in all areas of life. Inclusion must be more than just a word.
In tax and financial policy, dotzler and the bavarian party are pursuing the following positions: "we want a simplification of tax law with its more than 70,000 individual regulations", he demands. This includes, among other things, the abolition of de minimis taxes. The costs here are too high and the benefits only small, as the example of the sparkling wine tax of 1912 – to finance the imperial fleet at that time – shows. "The solidarity surcharge must also be abolished by 2019 at the latest. Bavaria could certainly use the money more urgently in some regions, such as dresden or leipzig", rages thomas dotzler.
Furthermore, all subsidies should be checked for their sense and sustainability. The bavarian party demands clear rules for banks and insurance companies. Speculators had to obey the laws. "We are very critical of the privatization of state property; we want a two-thirds majority of the state parliament for major sales. So-called bad banks, on the other hand, must bear their losses themselves and not pass them on to the taxpayer", demands dotzler.

Family as the heart

For dotzler, the family itself is the heart of society. Therefore, he clearly declares his support for the right of parents to take care of their children’s education themselves, without any interference from the state. "We reject the one-sided fixation on state care services. We demand a cost-covering child benefit and a basic education salary. Legislators should ensure that every child over the age of four is guaranteed a place in a kindergarten." In addition, it should not be the case that children’s food and clothing are taxed like luxury goods, which he rejects in view of the high financial burden on families.
"The social policy of the bavarian party is clearly based on the demand ‘equal pay for men and women’. In addition, we want to provide more individual counseling for men and women looking for work, in order to get them back into employment in their regional environment, says the railroad employee.
In the matter of refugees, dotzler wants to take a strong stand against smuggling and demand more solidarity from all EU countries with germany, france and sweden in the distribution of those seeking protection.
Independent of his election as a direct candidate, dotzler appeals to all citizens of bamberg to go to the polls. Because going to the polls is not a matter of course. In some countries people are allowed to vote, but the winner is already known before the election.

Singing 200 bambergers for their birthday?

singing 200 bambergers for their birthday?

The challenge for 3. August stands: "bet that bamberg does not manage to bring 200 people to the maxplatz at 2 p.M. Sharp to sing a birthday song to our office with a FT newspaper hat on their heads." For a year now, the historic krackhardt house has been a focal point for all readers, which is now to be celebrated in a fitting manner. The countdown is on – and with the final preparations, the tension is rising: how many bambergers will raise their voices to sing about the FT, but at the same time let the city bet lose??

With "topless
Only a few days left until the birthday party, which promises to be more than a highlight. Above all, "germany's most successful austropop band" gives right at the opening the tone: "topless" play austria five among other classics to send the audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions, as jo farmer promises. "By the way, we are the first band that rainhard fendrich allowed to cover 'topless'", says the frontman of the group. As a result, farmer sings from the soul of the people of bamberg in sweltering temperatures with his rhymes: "the heat of the city is brutal in summer, since one is terribly dull, life becomes a torture." Remember? Of course – like many other fans who bob and flick along at concerts of the french austropoppers, when the band also reminds of legends like georg danzer, ludwig hirsch and falco: "artists who left us far too early", says farmer.

The youngest were allowed to perform udo jurgen's catchy tune "i have never been to new york" at the family festival walk in the legs. "The children always dance enthusiastically."

Nepomuk digs the gas again

Nepomuk digs the gas again

"We want to be inviting to our guests", says herta muller, chairwoman of the local heritage association. And this has been achieved once again in aschach, namely at the entrance to the village when driving over the saalebrucke river. A few meters before the castle, on the right, the new site with the statue of nepomuk buries the visitors.
Until a few weeks ago, this place looked uninviting. On the initiative of the heimat- wander- und gartenbauvereins aschach e.V. It was achieved that the state building authority cut back the wildly growing hedge in this area and removed the concrete paving.
After the excavation of the site and the laying of the subsoil, the workers of the office placed new stones. The new bench was donated by the municipality and installed by the farm workers – visitors can now linger here and enjoy the beautiful view of the asachach castle.
Meanwhile, the local association agreed to take care of the site in the future, which is lovingly done by the members of the association. A planted fountain trough creates a pleasant ambience. "The sculptor ludwig bauer restored the damaged trough free of charge and placed it here", explains herta muller.
The figure of the bridge saint nepomuk was also freed from moss. Now the statue, which was made in 1744, watches over the saalebrucke in new splendor. "Both the bauhhof and the state building authority have supported us very much", reports the secretary of the association, wolfgang manderi. He describes the cooperation with the individual agencies responsible for the construction of the square as very good. "We have worked hand in hand to ensure that the square shines in new splendor."
Of course, it is not enough just to create a place, it also needs to be looked after. This task is in good hands with the aschach home, hiking and gardening association. Because the members have experience with something like this. The grounds near the village well, the pilgrimage wayside shrine and the grounds on olberg are also well maintained.
Now everyone should be concerned that everything stays the same. "We therefore ask the users of the square not to leave any mulch here and to treat the square and the bench with care" wolfgang manderi appeals to all. After all, the square should also look as inviting in the future as it does today, and it should make every visitor at the entrance to the village feel positively about aschach.
