Germany's labour minister is calling for wage rises across the country after two years of strong economic growth.
Ursula von der Leyen says German businesses are making profits and workers deserve a share of the success. The government is also working with companies to implement a system called kurzarbeit, which means cutting working hours rather than cutting jobs.
The reforms have helped bring the jobless rate down to less than 7 per cent. However, many still struggle to make ends meet.
