Abstract

Der vorliegende Artikel nutzt zwei Befragungen unter Arbeitnehmern und Arbeitgebern im Bereich der geringfügigen Beschäftigung für eine aktuelle Bestandsaufnahme der Minijobs, und vergleicht die Ergebnisse mit der Situation vor Einführung des gesetzlichen Mindestlohns. Im Vordergrund stehen hierbei die Arbeitsstunden, der Stundenlohn, Gründe für die Aufnahme bzw. für das Angebot von Minijobs, sowie die Arbeitsqualität in Form von Gewährung gesetzlich vorgeschriebener Leistungen, wie z.B. die Entgeltfortzahlung im Krankheitsfall. Insgesamt ergibt sich ein vielschichtiges Bild: Einerseits zeigen sich deutliche Verbesserungen bei den Löhnen und der Leistungsgewährung, und viele geringfügig Beschäftigte sind offenbar mit ihrem Minijob zufrieden. Andererseits sind auch nach Einführung des Mindestlohns noch Löhne unter 8,50 Euro zu beobachten, und die Sprungbrettfunktion von Minijobs hat weiter an Bedeutung verloren.
