I distinctly remember an SPD-Grüne majority government in the '90s. Is there some legal arcana here that enables the CDU to block a minimum wage law despite being in the minority for a solid decade? Or were the SPD just being gentlemanly and abstaining from any social progress that the CDU pitched a hissy fit over?
