With this motion (NR.344) we are increasing the funds for fractions for the 2022 financial year by 7% on a one-time basis. The impact of crises also affects the employees of the fractions in the Römer. Especially in local politics, a lot of voluntary work is often done in addition to the paid hours and although municipal decisions have a direct impact on the lives of Frankfurt’s citizens, employees often experience little appreciation. Insufficient payment could lead to staff leaving, which in turn could lead to poorer decisions. This is not in the interest of the people of Frankfurt.

Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
