The heads of the German state railway company addressed a joint letter to the federal finance, family and transport ministers, listing several reasons for the impracticability of the draft. a Spiegel.

A bill that has been under development since the summer would make it mandatory for German state-owned companies to have a 50 percent female employee quota. However, meeting this would cause extreme difficulties for the nearly one hundred thousand new employees planned to be employed by the company. The vast majority of them would go to the technical-operational area, which is already struggling with a significant labor shortage and typically consists of hard manual labor, where it is not difficult to see that few women are applying. In addition, the high number of equal opportunities officers, which are also mandatory above a certain number of organizations, would cost the company up to € 32 billion in additional costs, which would significantly impair its competitiveness, executives wrote.

The government has not yet given a formal response, citing that the draft is still under discussion.
