I suspect the issue is there are not enough qualified workers at the wage rates being offered,

I doubt that this is the case. Qualified workers have very strong incentives to work, even in the generous European welfare states. These kind of people do not become unemployed because they "choose" to. Further, it would go against protestant work ethic.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
