Workforce ended in France
French companies faced with a shortage of qualified workforce, while officially registered 3.5 million unemployed at the labor exchange. This is reported by Bloomberg referring to the companies surveyed and statistics on the labor market in France.
With difficulties, for example, faced the company-supplier of parts for Airbus - Figeac-Aero. The plant manager in Auxerre, Patrice Pariso, complains that the company has done everything possible to attract new employees, but still can not cover the shortage of employees. Advertising and training programs do not give the expected effect. "I do not even know who to turn to," says Pariso.
According to the French employment agency, out of the 29 million working-age population of France, 3.5 million are officially unemployed. At the end of 2017, 200-330 thousand vacancies were not closed, 75 percent of them being due to the lack of skilled workers.
The agency notes that French President Emmanuelle Macron is trying to deal with the lack of qualified personnel. The government intends to invest about 15 billion euros to upgrade the retraining programs, as well as to create courses to improve skills and qualifications. The authorities fear that a shortage of competitive labor force will become a brake on France's economic growth.
The head of the Bank of France, Francois Villerois de Galo, told the agency that because of this problem "the French car is not going fast enough", he calls on the government to solve the problem. "We can not remain a country with three million unemployed in parallel with thousands of unoccupied jobs. This is a real paradox," Villerois resents.
Similar problems are experienced by the American labor market. Due to a lack of qualified personnel, US companies have already begun to incur losses.
