Ukraine refugees from the canton of Lucerne think their social assistance is too low. (icon picture)

39 Ukrainian refugees living in the canton of Lucerne have appealed to the cantonal court. This is to check whether the social welfare payments that the canton pays to asylum seekers violate federal law.

Because the Lucerne asylum social assistance is one of the lowest in the country: 14.15 francs per day is received by an adult if he lives in single accommodation. If he lives in collective accommodation such as an asylum home or a civil protection facility, it is only CHF 11.50. For comparison: recipients of social assistance with a Swiss passport, but also recognized refugees, receive more than twice as much at CHF 33.90.
