Granted, the headline is a bit bold: It shows very nicely what many Company think about their skilled workers - at least if you follow Karl Brenke from DIW. Because he has spoken in an interview with the Stuttgart newspaper again to speak with the steep thesis: "Only cheap professionals are rare."

They [companies] complain about a lack of people at a certain price. In addition, hardly a person responsible for the personnel is happy to say that he has a simple job - but he would if he could easily find skilled personnel.

Only a cheap specialist is a good specialist

Overview

Meanwhile jumps, after various other media, now also the Süddeutsche Newspaper on the train, the subject Skills shortage to look at something more critical and differentiated.

In her article "Unsuccessful job search How the shortage of skilled workers frustrates applicants" Nicola Holzapfel reports on various examples of people who, despite alleged shortage of skilled labor, can not find a job. And in the end, notice: There is something wrong with the job market.

Plain text from DIW

Overview

Even in a radio interview cusses Dr. Karl Brenke from the German Institute for Economic Research says: "There is no shortage of skilled workers." What's more, he also explains why the federal government and industry have nevertheless started the Blue Card Initiative: "It's about pushing wages!"

One million vacancies unoccupied?

Overview

One million jobs are said to be vacant in Germany - the Federal Government has now launched the Blue Card, a skilled workers initiative that will allow foreign skilled workers to work in Germany - but for a comparatively low fee.

But the economic expert Karl Brenke, a research assistant at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) doubts that there is a shortage of skilled workers at all. The government just wants to push the wages in this country, says Brenke.

Bold step

Overview

Almost funny, as the moderator always checked again, whether it is not somehow and if not now but then somehow skilled craftsman. This shows that the attitude on the subject is so gradually tipping in the media.

This has been more cautious over a year ago: Even then, the skills-shortage theory was already criticized by Brenke - but much more restrained and with less clear words.
