Eurozone Unemployment Holds At 10%

Recommended Posts

Streetinsider

Perhaps thing aren't as bad in the Eurozone.

Oh look - Austrian unemployment rate is only 4%. Less than half of the US.

That with the socialists being the controlling party there for all but four of the last forty years, its fantastic universal health-care system, state-owned transport system and utilities, and high benefits.

That can't be right, can it? One for the right-wing loonies on here to explain away.

I've lived there, and my mum's from there. I've never understood how the place works. No-one seems to do any work, everyone appears to be rich and have a job. Working over 35 hours a week is considered a violation of basic human dignity.

Their education system absolutely p1sses on ours, except at the highest level.

Small population

50% of workers in strong trade unions

Locus of EU expansion into the East (uh oh!)

Charge wealthy Germans (ex Munich) and Italians (ex North) for looking at their scenery

It's a bit like Wales but with money.

Strong Trade Unions as well?

Can they get nothing right?

Send the "Austrians" over there to sort things out.

Its shouldn't really matter but a homogenised population may help as well.

People car more about and trust others who are similar to themselves. Human nature.
