Germany Wants To Attract 400,000 Skilled Workers From Abroad Each Year by humberjade: 2:26pm On Jan 21
BERLIN, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Germany's new coalition government wants to attract 400,000 qualified workers from abroad each year to tackle both a demographic imbalance and labour shortages in key sectors that risk undermining the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

"The shortage of skilled workers has become so serious by now that it is dramatically slowing down our economy," Christian Duerr, parliamentary leader of the co-governing Free Democrats (FDP), told business magazine WirtschaftsWoche.

"We can only get the problem of an ageing workforce under control with a modern immigration policy... We have to reach the mark of 400,000 skilled workers from abroad as quickly as possible," Duerr added.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz's Social Democrats, Duerr's libertarian FDP and the environmentalist Greens agreed in their coalition deal on measures like a points system for specialists from countries outside the European Union and lifting the national minimum wage to 12 euros ($13.60) per hour to make working in Germany more attractive.

The employer-friendly German Economic Institute estimates that the labour force will shrink by more than 300,000 people this year as there are more older workers retiring than younger ones entering the labour market.

This gap is expected to widen to more than 650,000 in 2029, leaving an accumulated shortage of people of working age in 2030 of roughly 5 million. The number of Germans in employment grew to nearly 45 million last year despite the coronavirus pandemic.

After decades of low birth rates and uneven migration, a shrinking labour force also poses a demographic time bomb for Germany's public pension system, in which fewer employees are burdened with the task of financing the pensions of a growing mass of retirees who are enjoying longer life expectancy.

I know it's brain drain, but it is pure wickedness for one to tell our best brains who suffered through and came out tops from our various tough tertiary institutions, to keep working in a system that doesn't appreciate or reward their struggles and potentials. Hence, if you know your onions, start dusting your passports. Canada, USA and UK can't accommodate everyone.

NB:You will have to learn Deutsch for better integration and significant career progress.

Oh great! Yes I am, but unfortunately I am still struggling with it grin

Kinda difficult to learn though, an English word can have like 7 meanings in Deutsch. But then, I am a slow learner when it comes to learning new languages, you might find it easier though.

All the best
