Craftsmen, catering staff, conservators of monuments, car mechanics, builders, but most of all the doctors and nurses from the Polish soon find employment in the German labour market.
The official opening of the labor market in Germany for the new EU countries, including Polish, will be 30 April 2011. But now the German government abolished the administrative barriers in recruiting highly qualified Polish immigrants.
The greatest interest of the German employers are Polish doctors, dentists and nurses and carers of the elderly. Condition of employment is a good knowledge of German language. German medical personnel is very expensive, and the demand for such services is constantly growing. This is due to the fact that every third person in Germany is already retired. In German hospitals also lack the specialized management. Managers specializing in health care are on the list, search for jobs by the Federal Employment Agency and currently have privileges in obtaining employment permits.
According to company owner MMC Consulting, Polish craftsmen, hotel and catering staff, car mechanics and builders can also count on well-paid jobs. In these professions there is a change of generations. Retirement leave employees who are not there to replace.
Also, temporary work agencies are hoping that after the opening of the German labour market will be 30 per cent increase in demand for temporary workers from Polish. The companies will employ staff m.in to build boats, care for the elderly or sick, for finishing works, as well as architects and computer scientists.
Experts agree that the Poles will begin to migrate in masse for a profit to Germany after 2011 but it`ll mainly depend on the situation in the local labour market. Recent studies conducted by the newspaper Handelsblatt and the firm Droege & Comp. shows that German companies intend to in 2010. substantially increase employment. The report of the Deutsche Bundesbank says about decline in unemployment in 2011. from the current 8.7 percent. to 4.2 percent. According to Lars Bosse, Director of the Polish-German Chamber of Commerce, it`s very optimistic forecast because that nearly 1.5 million people employed in industry and they are currently called as short-time workers and their wages largely borne by the Government. These subsidies will end in 12 months and if by that time, they will not will acquire new jobs, unemployed workers will go into the registers.
For the German economy driving domestic consumption is going slowly down. The reason is more frequent trips overseas pensioners. Its provision of transfers to other countries has already closed to 1.5 million Germans.
