Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That doesn't necessarily prevent them from whining about it.

Of course not, but does Germany have a decent system of vocational training for these technical/manual posts any more, or doesn't it, is the question that seems relevant.


a game of chicken begins between the consumers of labour, and prices go up until enough consumers of labour back out

In an economy that has depressed wages over a long period and is export-oriented, there might be quite some room for wages to rise before reaching labour-market demand destruction.
