Peter Tauber und die Mini-Jobber : Voll vertwittert - Kommentar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Angela Merkel wird der Ausfall maßlos ärgern. Es lief ja alles rund bis hierher, nun aber muss sich die Union mit dem Vorwurf der sozialen Kälte herumschlagen. Dass die CDU-Chefin jetzt rasch öffentlich und offensiv auf Distanz zu ihrem schon länger in der Kritik stehenden Generalsekretär geht, damit ist allerdings nicht zu rechnen. Merkel wird die Sache nicht noch größer machen wollen und hoffen, dass der Sturm schnell vorüberzieht.

Inequality report: Top 1% of Scots have more than bottom 50% - The Scotsman
The richest one per cent north of the border owns more wealth than the bottom 50 per cent, with the poorest 40 per cent of households 9.4 times worse off in 2012/14 than the top 10 per cent, compared with 8.8 times in 2010/12. The research paper found that the least wealthy 30 per cent of households “have very few assets, with employment no longer a guarantee against low wealth.”

UK faces return to inequality of Thatcher years, says report | Business | The Guardian
Pressure on the government to help struggling Britons has intensified after a leading thinktank warned that falling living standards for the poor threatened the biggest rise in inequality since Margaret Thatcher was prime minister.

The Resolution Foundation said Theresa May would need to make good on her pledge to support “just about managing” households as it released a report showing that rising inflation and an end to recent strong jobs growth would hit the least well-off hardest.
