Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Could be worse.  Could be the US.  We've been dismantling skilled and semi-skilled trades and their training programs for a half-century.  When I last worked in a factory 35 years ago, I was the only one of my generation with any machining skills.  We weren't training anyone because everyone was going to sit behind a desk in a FIRE industry.  It's a lot worse now.  We'd have to import piles of people in order to get manufacturing off the ground, and that ain't happening.
