The Hartz reforms and the German labor force
The passage of the Hartz reforms, the most aggressive post-war labor reform in the country, began in 2003 and the final stage was instituted by 2005. Since 2005, having peaked at 11.3%, the German unemployment rate has been in a continuous decline in each subsequent year – to 7.5% in 2008 and ultimately to 5.5% in 2012. The Hartz reforms coinciding with the turnaround in the labor markets has always been of particular interest to researchers and policy analysts.
