The ministers of the federal government and their subordinate authorities are planning another significant increase in jobs for the next year.

As the "Bild" (Saturday edition) reports, citing a list by the FDP member of the Bundestag and budget politician Otto Fricke, the number of posts in ministries and authorities is expected to increase by a total of 4.782. The biggest plus is therefore in the division of Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) with 1.791 new positions.

Federal Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD) receives a total of 1.584 new posts, and Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CSU) receives a total of 1.111 new posts. In contrast, jobs are also saved. Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) has to make do with 513 fewer jobs. It is "irresponsible and contradictory that the government wants to have an emergency situation in the budget, but at the same time requests additional staff in four-digit amounts," said Fricke of the "image".

It could not be that the state "inflates in economically difficult times".
