Idle hands too

Under German employment law, women under the age of 55 may be forced into prostitution or lose their benefits. This is deranged (via Knowledge is Power).

A 25-year-old waitress who turned down a job providing "sexual services'' at a brothel in Berlin faces possible cuts to her unemployment benefit under laws introduced this year. Prostitution was legalised in Germany just over two years ago and brothel owners who must pay tax and employee health insurance were granted access to official databases of jobseekers.
