city dies we already have huge youth unemployment we can't go on like this. indeed unemployment in the who're area germany's industrial heartland is way over ten percent more than double the german average four years everything from technological advances to the current energy transition has led to a far reaching structural change in the who area and with no other industry settling here to make up for the jobs lost workers want to make sure that the steel business is not entirely leaving germany. france's president i'm annoyed my call has signed a series of controversial labor market reforms into law tens of thousands of people took to the streets to protest the changes and measures make it easier for companies to hire and fire workers and also allow small companies to negotiate directly with their staff instead of recurring to trade unions mccall was elected
