Unemployment in the boom-town? Only on the first sight it is an contradictory result. Correct is while the number of labour force from 2006 till 2010 rise about 29.000, the number of unemployed people sank only about 10.000. Frankfurt’s rise is one of the benefits above all the surrounding areas, specifically the Taunus. There is the unemployment rate so less that the political economists talk about full employment. In the Hochtaununskreis there are 4.4 percent of labour force reported as unemployed, in the Main-Taunus-Kreis 4.9 percent. The jobs in Frankfurt und the people out of work: it does not fit.
On the on hand only the service sector growths in Frankfurt. That are not only, but in a considerable volume, jobs that require a good qualification. But on the other hand on Frankfurts unemployed peoplo dominate who are not qualified for management positions or high-qualified jobs. From the 27,200 women and men that were registraited on february in the employment agency not less than 16,600 had no job training. 8,200 were classified as long-term unemployed. In the neighbourhoods in Frankfurt along the Main river there are most people who are out of work: in Griesheim, Höchst, Nied, Gallus and Fechenheim ,also in Bonames and Sossenheim. In these areas, immigrants are spread very enormous. This is a reason of the high unemployment rate in comparison with the other part of Frankfurt, the northern part, like Nordend, Kalbach, Eschersheim, Nieder-Erlenbach and Harheim, they are nearly on the niveau of the Taunus area.
