Frankfurt am Main: 29.000 new jobs – 10.000 unemployed people less

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.

  1. This only shows me how important it is to be educated 16,600 out of 27,200 without an apprenticeship! This is a percentage from over 60 per cent. The problem with the immigrants could be solved through education schemes, adult classes, language courses and so on. Also it is very important to get the long-term unemployed back into work. In Germany it is very hard to find a job when you didn`t work for a long time. Most employers are afraid that long-term unemployed lost their skills and are not motivated enough. A lot of times they don’t get a chance. All in all Frankfurt has a low unemployment rate but still could improve according to immigration, apprenticeship and long-term unemployment.

  2. In Frankfurt, the unemployment rate is related to the industry sector which offers less people a working place. The importance of manufacturing, as statisticians call this industry, has stabilized since the nineties – but at low levels. Frankfurt at all is service-driven; first this was a benefit how the development of employment figures shows but due to the recent crisis, regions dominated by industries lost mainly , because they suffered most from the world trade collapse.

  3. In post was mention that big amount of unemployment people haven´t got job training. I think that´s a main problem of unemloyment people, because for example, every student who finished studies and applaing the job, is in this situation. Because not everybody attend job during the education and most of the eployers ask for the previous experience. I think that every has to have on school practise, because it will be very usefull. Make re-training programs for others and focus on this problem. Because according my opinion is problem is problem in many countries.

  4. I think this is a very interesting post given its findings. It supports the idea that in our continuously developing society, continuing education is essential, because jobs requiring little to no training will continue to be eliminated by technology such as assembly robotics and scanning technologies. It is much cheaper to acquire a machine that can work 24 hours a day to produce a product than hire the 3 shifts needed to produce it by man-power, not to mention rise in efficiency when production is automated.

    It seems we will either need a revolution in the education system to better train the under-qualified workers or a drastic increase in social welfare benefits to combat the rising level of unemployment of the untrained. Otherwise, it seems that we will soon be facing chaos.
