the Image of the UN and the Bank, the city of Geneva has received during the Corona-crisis deep scratches. Journalists from all over the world have reported on the now 3000 needy, the Saturday to Saturday in front of the football stadium Les Vernets for a free food package in a queue. “The images have shocked me,” said the Council of state, Thierry Apothéloz (SP) in an Interview with the Swiss television RTS.

The Geneva government responded on Monday to the plight. She presented an emergency law for the elderly, in order to compensate persons between the age of 17. March and the 16. May have lost their job, and neither unemployment benefits nor social assistance can refer to. The law thus serves, in the first line of the Sans-Papiers. The compensation will be paid only Once, is intended to cover 80 percent of your last income, and for the duration of two months. A further precondition is that the applicant stop for a year in Geneva, and for at least three months before the outbreak of the Corona-crisis employment have exercised.

In addition, be open, whether you would also need to include the name of their employer, which would deny most of the so hall.

the Council of state, Mauro Poggia (MCG) said on Monday in the Swiss daily show, he is the fundamental question of whether the state behavior for the failure of “unscrupulous employers” just had to stand; however, no one is allowed in the Canton of Geneva suffering from Hunger.
