the thing is, its not about your standard of living. The woman was an IT person but she said she was willing to be a waitress. Its about the fact that she didn't want to do a specific job. My argument is that her reasoning shouldn't be relevant. Again, I'll grant that I don't know the specifics of German law.

As I said, there are certain jobs that I'd rather he dirt poor and starving than work. It so happens that in my case prostitution is not one of them. But if I were required to lose my compensation because I took a moral stand against say, advertising for the Klan (which was my example) you can be damn sure that I'd raise one hell of a legal case against them. Again, not knowing as much about Germany, but here, such lawyers are pretty readily available through the ACLU, working pro-bono or working for a percentage of the settlement. I'd expect its similar there. I don't think the fact that she's seeking legal restitution is unjustified or at all relevant to whether or not she could find a job. Its been 2.5 years since I was laid off, and I still haven't found a job doing what I want to be doing. I deal with it. Settling is one thing, compromising oneself is another.
