Work In Germany? Yes- Maybe...


Recommended Posts

work-germany-yes-maybe

For come May 1, all the doors here in Germany are being flung open to eastern Europeans whose countries joined the EU in 2004. Poles, Czechs, Slovaks, Slovenes, Hungarians and citizens of the Baltic states can work freely in Germany, without the German employment office first having to make a detailed assessment as to whether a German worker could not be found for the same task, which was a requirement in force until now.

So now the eastern Europeans are free to come to Germany. But do they want to? Not in large numbers, say economists. “May 1 will not be the green light for mass migration,” said Christoph Schmidt, head of the Rhine-Westphalia Institute for Economic Research in Essen. Each year, he estimates, 100,000 more workers will arrive from eastern Europe. Not a big jump in the numbers, considering that there are currently about 600,000 of them already in Germany. “It's not that we just have to open the gates and the specialists will pour in.”

Thing about Germans, they are proud, industrious, productive and nationalistic.

Nowhere near as soft, lazy, dumb and greedy as is Britain.

We are the port of choice, and will continue to be so, for all the Eastern Europeans. Germany has little to worry about.

or arrogant, inflexible, afraid of getting their hands dirty, suffering from hubris etc... but I only speak from experience working there.

And the first to call time at work on a Friday, have some of the most generous holiday allowances in Europe etc...

Just in terms of being closer to home, I reckon the Poles would however find work in Germany more attractive.

Hello my dumb lazy greedy friend.

Id just like to inform you Germany has the same problems with unlimited immigrants as we do in Blighty.

Whilst the economy is clearly doing better theyre still governed by the same self serving EU mob as we are, so being a over regulated police state still applies.

Just becuase Blighty sucks there is no need to try painting Germany as some sort of Utopia to emphasise your point .
