The fear of a loss of a job is according to the Institute of the German economy (IW) in Germany on a low.
“The concern about a loss of a job is arrived at with the increase in the employment to the lowest level since reunification,” said Judith Niehues, Director of the research group for micro-data and method the development of the employer near Institute of the German press Agency in Berlin.
The Institute for labour market and occupational research (IAB), the active think-tank of the Federal employment Agency (BA), expects to close the current year with a new record for the purchase. Despite the economic weakness, the number of which in 2019 is expected to increase to 510,000 to approximately 45,35 million, as the IAB had recently communicated. Company secured increasingly scarce workers.
Niehues said: “the Worry about the economic Situation strongly declined and layer are in the medium-low.” The position of the middle class, today in Berlin in the focus. The Federal Minister of labour, Hubertus Heil (SPD) talks about it on the occasion of the presentation of a new book, “the end of the middle class” of the journalist Daniel Goffart.
Niehues has nearly half of the population to the middle class. Of this group, around two-thirds had comparatively little Worried and looked to the future with optimism. About a third of it but I have a lot of Worries. “The people who are at risk of poverty, these Worries are of course greater.” Niehues refers to the last year released a study, “split the middle” of her and Anja Katrin Orth.
