Germany -Foreign influx small part of labour shortage solutions -May 07, 2013

The changes that an ageing and shrinking population is bringing to the workforce has been the subject of a study by the Robert Bosch foundation. The study suggests the workforce could shrink by about 6m, or some 12 per cent, by 2030 without remedial action. Bringing workers from outside is only a small part of what politicians say must be a range of solutions to the labour shortage, including getting more women into the workforce and keeping older employees in work for longer.
