The residents of the Apprentice dormitory in Hammerstraße have participated with their own block in this year’s 1st-May demonstration of the DGB Hamburg.The focus was on demands for more affordable housing for trainees. “We want to make it clear that training is an important part of the working world and the basic conditions have to be right”, says Finja, who moved from her school in Flensburg last year the Apprentice dormitory in Hamburg. Meanwhile, with all 156 rooms occupied, the number of applicants currently exceeds the number of available spaces by 2,500 which is roughly around 16 times more.
