Abstract: 
The paper reviews national and international experiences with different combinations of in-work benefits, subsidized employment, statutory minimum wages and implicit minimum wages defined by social assistance provisions. It calls for a cautious approach regarding the introduction of additional minimum wages in Germany and more generous in-work benefits combined with an unchanged level of social assistance.
