Paris. There is a shortage of plumbers in Germany. America needs more postal workers for the postal service. There is a shortage of engineers in Australia. While hospitals in Canada are looking for more nurses. After the easing of the restrictions of the Covid epidemic, a large number of people had resigned from their jobs in these countries. Looks like that era isn’t over yet. Michael Bloom, managing director of a software company in East Germany, said he was struggling to find workers.
According to information from the AFP news agency, Bloom’s Currentsystem23 company is based in East Germany. He said everywhere we look we are short of qualified people. Germany is the largest economy in Europe. There were 887,000 job vacancies in August, about 108,000 more than last year. When the situation in America is so bad that “Help Wanted” posters have been posted in front of restaurants and other businesses. There were over 1.1 crore job openings at the end of July. In other words, there are two jobs for every job seeker.
Ariane Curtis, a Toronto-based economist at research firm Capital Economics, said jobs around the world were still very hard to fill. Curtis said countries in Western Europe and North America are particularly struggling to fill jobs. However, this problem also exists in Eastern Europe, Turkey and Latin America. The global economy has slowed since Russia invaded Ukraine earlier this year, but workers remain scarce. There’s a teacher shortage in Texas, so there aren’t enough workers in Italy’s or Canada’s healthcare systems. The shortage led to the closure of pharmacies in the US state of Wisconsin, wards in hospitals in the Canadian province of Alberta and restaurants on Australia’s Sunshine Coast for some time during the day.

The jobs are there, but companies are struggling with a shortage of skilled workers, targets are not being met
change in people’s mentality
Due to the increase in the number of aging people in these countries, there was already a shortage of workers. But this problem exploded with the Covid pandemic. There are many reasons for this. Some have chosen to retire early, others have been battling Covid symptoms for a long time. While others complain of poor working conditions or low wages. There has been a huge drop in immigration due to the lockdown. People and workers leaving the cities take the time to think about their career options. Companies pay more wages to retain or attract employees. The possibility of working from home, bonuses and more vacations are also offered. Some countries are relaxing their immigration rules to attract more workers.
