The Reichstag adopts the unemployment insurance act by a large majority. The law transforms unemployment welfare into an insurance. Employee and employer both have to pay equal shares - 3% of the wage each - into the insurance fund. Amongst scholars this law is regarded as one of the most important pieces of socio-political legislation passed in the Weimar Republic.
