Flipping the Script - A different kind of political debate Is Germany really a country of equal opportunity?

"Our children should have a better life than ours." Social mobility can happen over several generations and sometimes there is leap with a single individual. But does Germany offer enough opportunities?

To discuss this we have two guests. Aman Sharma made it from a refugee to a successful entrepreneur. He says: "Any one in Germany can make it, it is just a matter of attitude." Lisa Zimmermann, studies social work and feels that as the daughter of a long-term unemployed man she faces structural obstacles.
