Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Germany has an upcoming Whammy of sorts, yes?, with the reductions in the military in the very near future, which I've heard will put about a third or a fourth of their people into the 'normal' workforce at the same time that Germany will have a "double" gymnasium class entering the workforce/university tract as they're eliminating the 13th year of gymnasium and therefore graduating both 12th and 13th graders this year only.

That should be a challenge, I think. I'm not sure how many years the military cuts will take, though I don't think it's all at once, but the well-trained military folk will certainly create additional competition for good jobs at a time when there are already unemployment stresses.
