German to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary - Poetry & Literature / teenage novel
German term or phrase:Hartz IV
I know this is in the glossary, but the technical answers don't fit here. This is from a teenage novel:
"Wenn Mara in ihrer Straße mal jemanded fragte, jemanden in ihrem Alter, was er später mal machen wollte, schaute er erst mal argwöhnisch und sagte dann: "Was mal machen? Ich krieg später Hartz IV." So sah das aus."
Would it be best to stick to "I'll be on the dole"?
