The reason why there are so many "openings" and "labour shortage" in Germany is because nobody wants to work there. Everybody is leaving in droves, skilled people would never even dream of going there - taxes are ridiculously high, work environment is extremely bureacratic, people are cold, self-centered, and extremely rude and racist. You hit the nail on the head, Anti-Kartoffel.
Yet they are thriving while the rest of the EU fails. Hmmmmmm.

What do you mean "thriving"? You don't live here, dumbass. The place is still a depressing hellhole, most of the building infrastructure is stuck in the 70s and information technology here is outdated to the 90's. The government changed the way they calculated employment figures, and that's the real reason why unemployment appeared to "go down" to the eyes of someone as stupid as you, but in reality wages have stagnated and standard of living has declined.

Just like the U.S. crumbling infrastructure, under reported unemployment, stagnant wages, drugs, illegal aliens, etc. There is not one thing that you mention that is not the same in the U.S. but still they are at the top of the EU economically. I travel to Germany often and compared to most other EU countries they are thriving.
Now if you want to trade insults go play with the other trolls. After all I am not the stupid dumbass living in Germany and bitching about it.
