Every second company complains about a shortage of skilled workers

Whether retail, construction or service providers – in Germany there is a lack of skilled workers. According to a survey by the Munich ifo Institute, 49.7 percent of companies were affected in July. “More and more companies are having to scale back their business because they simply can’t find enough staff,” says ifo labor market expert Stefan Sauer. The previous record was 43.6 percent in April this year.

At 54.2 percent, the services sector is most affected by the shortage of skilled workers, followed by manufacturing with 44.5 percent of companies complaining about a shortage.
