Inequality is one of the issues dividing voters in one Germany's poorest states


In the fourth of our nine episodes looking at September’s German election euronews speaks to Katharina Haucap.

Katharina is a single mother living in Bremen, one of the poorest areas in Germany. She was unemployed for several years mainly because she had no way of taking care of her children.

Now Katharina is a carer in a family centre set up to help solve the problems she herself faced as a parent trying to find work. She’s paid little more than a euro per hour but she likes her job and would like to study to go into social work.

Katharina hopes that whoever is elected will invest more in facilities like the one she is working at.
