Housing - the new social question

In Germany, the number of homeless people is rising sharply despite the good situation on the labor market. The number of persons without a flat has doubled since 2014 to 860,000, as the Federal Working Group on Homelessness (BAG W) announced in November 2017. For the SPD parliamentary group leader Andrea Nahles, the housing situation is the new social issue that the grand coalition wants to answer with a new legislative package.
