Aus diesen Fördergeldern ist auf erschreckene Weise eine sogenannte "Armutsindustrie" enstanden, an der alle mitverdienen, nur nicht die Hartz IV Betroffenen selbst. Bei diesen Beschäftigungsmaßnahmen müssen Erwerbslose für einen Euro in der Stunde stricken, Puzzel zusammen setzen oder eine "Witze-Zeitung" erstellen. Sehen Sie den Film:
