  1. It seems like Munich is doing really good according to youth unemployment and the integration of immigrants into the local labour market. I think the labour mobility in Germany is not very high. If people would be more flexible re to the location of work the issue could be limited. Furthermore, the lack of skilled workers is a national problem, not only Munich is dealing with it.

  2. I think that Munich is very perspective and attractive for young people use oportunity of this city, because the unemployment rate is unbelievable low. It´s perfect situation and Germany can really good deal with problem. Has such a low unemployment rate is for my surprise and fact that is posible to do things in this field better and countries have to bring from Munich example. The program for migrants is valuable too. Nowdays is necessary help people in this fields. Support them and create good living conditions.

  3. I think this is a good situation for Munich and the young generation but they should plan more jobs for the old people. The population is ageing in Germany so I think they need more jobs for the old generation otherwise the young people have to pay for the old one. Nevertheless it is good that Munich take care of the young generation and integrate the immigrants in the local labour market.
