There's no evidence that even happened. There is nothing about it in German news, and the site you linked to only links to itself as evidence of it happening. The only websites on the internet that even discuss it are all Christian sites.
It would make sense, and help your argument, if you could establish whether the story is true, before posting it on ATS for all to see. I say that because if/when this is discovered to be a hoax, you will look pretty silly.
A 25-year-old waitress who turned down a job providing "sexual services'' at a brothel in Berlin faces possible cuts to her unemployment benefit under laws introduced this year.
…Under Germany's welfare reforms, any woman under 55 who has been out of work for more than a year can be forced to take an available job – including in the sex industry – or lose her unemployment benefit…
The government had considered making brothels an exception on moral grounds, but decided that it would be too difficult to distinguish them from bars. As a result, job centres must treat employers looking for a prostitute in the same way as those looking for a dental nurse.
Great, so now the government can be your pimp…Hey Germany, how about giving decriminalization a try?!
