While USA’s economy fights tragic losses in made in America products, Germany’s economy is holding-up well and looking to invest more in their workforce and production.
America’s most lauded Republican candidates have gained ground by thrashing the people and workforce, education and growing jobs in America unless America’s workforce accepts sweatshops wages without benefits.
What does it do to the American workforce to be devalued? Germany sets an example on how to be prosperous by a civilized means of equitable work and profit policies. Unlike the use you, lose you tactics that rising politicians use for fodder.
Even the military takes a backseat to pay and benefits given by USA owners to their private armies. Production of made in America/USA is barely starting to grow, but those that pledge to ring-out everything out of workers, education, social services, and glory in the fall of unions, are pulling in masses; threaten to put tax-payers out like garbage.
On February 3, 2011 when European leaders discussed eurozone reforms Germany was the strongest member. German labor and human policies could help other countries to shape a healthy economy.
In the USA, the word is cut – salaries, benefits and everything else that can proper a healthy workforce and people.
In Germany, Mehrdad Payandeh, director of economic, financial, and tax policy at the Confederation of German Trade Unions, proposes RAISING the minimum wage to “spur German consumer demand” and “European and global rebalancing”. Trade unions in Germany take a seat at employer and organization boar meetings to work out, instead of layoffs, policies such as “short-work”.
In the United States, labor unions are pushed out and deviled because companies want to pay sweatshop wages and no benefits, use lose workers tactics that have caused the unemployment to sky rocket.
Germany uses social programs to compensate workers on reduced hours for up to 90 percent of wages, and for employee training. Moreover, labor unions in Germany are negotiating for “better salaries”, with the idea that higher wages would “increase domestic demand for national, products, and reduce economic imbalances.”
While the USA compensates corporations with tax loopholes and special interest entitlements and subsidies for importing workers and exporting jobs, German made products continue to be in high demand; especially engine construction, automobiles, and other capital-intensive goods.
Germany’s workforce is not used and dumped. Workers are retrained, and instead of layoff and cutbacks, they offer flexible hours and the government subsidizes workers for up to 90% of wages.
Germany is now the biggest economy in Europe.
Is the USA irreparably damaging its workforce by treating workers with disdain, while Germany’s economy is growing? Germany’s public debt accounts for around 70 percent of GDP, similar to the United States; however, Germany’s private wealth is five times bigger than public debt so, there is no “anxiety about indebtedness.”
German economy seems based on principles and not personalities not in personalities without principles and workforce, education and human, depreciation.
