The fact that this subsidy is provided only to the eastern states is becoming particularly contentious. For a long time now many regions in the West have suffered from similar conditions to those the eastern states endured shortly after unification: industrial decline, high unemployment, migration away from the area, municipal debt. The former industrial heartland between the Ruhr and the Rhine is particularly vocal in calling for the subsidies to go to areas in particular need, regardless of geographical location. Even eastern German politicians are not deaf to western states' appeals for fairness.
