On the Hunt for Skilled Workers
Germany is ageing. That means there aren't enough young people entering the jobs market, and that German business faces a major challenge. The government is actively trying to mitigate the predicted dearth of skilled workers by going out and looking for them. As part of the project, it's also looking at attracting workers from abroad. But as this case from Hanover shows, the government has its work cut out for it.
