In Caritas markets, people affected by poverty can buy cheap food. In view of the inflation, the offer is in high demand.

If you have to turn over every franc twice, inflation hits you particularly hard. In November, the conference of social directors of the cantons called for an increase in social assistance. Analogous to the adjustment of the AHV and IV pensions, the so-called basic requirement in social assistance is also to be increased by 2.5 percent. Namely by 25 francs to 1031 francs per month. That’s 300 francs a year.

Most cantons have complied with this recommendation. But not all.
