The economic crisis and its social impact is a major concern for most EU citizens, according to a survey published Thursday (20 December) by survey group Eurobarometer.
The proportion of Europeans who say that the situation of their national economy is rather bad or very bad exceeds two-thirds for the ninth consecutive time, notes the survey. Unemployment, the general unchanged nature of the economic crisis, and rising prices are among the greatest concerns.
The fear of losing a job or not finding one is pervasive throughout the EU. More than six Europeans out of 10 believe that the worst is still to come when it comes to the impact of the economic crisis on the job market.

The researchers studied net migration to Germany over 50 years, and predicted that as euro-zone countries battle with their economic woes the relative strength and low unemployment rates of Germany will become an attractive lure.
Germany is already a popular destination for young and skilled Greeks, Spaniard and Portuguese, who have grown disheartened with the high unemployment rates and struggling economies that have become hallmarks of their homelands.
The Spanish unemployment rate has hit 24 per cent, and for the under 25s it has reached 54 per cent. In contrast German unemployment stands at 6.9 per cent, and the country has experienced shortages of skilled labour.
You attacking the “Anglo-Saxon capitalist model”?
Are you upset about German unemployment stands at 6.9 per cent?
Absolutely not. But at the expense of the rest of Europe, that is not right. That’s the elites and their games, since the social market economy requires state involvement in business and the economy.
Is this your coming out and denying you are a conservative, BTW?
Curious reaction you had, considering the thread is about unemployment.
In the West you will find different variations of a shared concept. Such as:
America is a federal constitutional republic.
Germany is a federal parliamentary republic.
Britain is a constitutional monarchy and parliamentary system.
I just gave you additional employment information in Europe. That is definitely not worth you getting hostile about... at least not a normal person.
Yes, the thread is about unemployment. And in the EU, the cause comes from the top.
These troubled European nations have a lot of their own baggage.
Even the one with the lowest unemployment figures.
The problem is that free trade brought forth all the socialism...and until you end free trade the socialism will remain. Just ask the French...they seem to prefer keeping free trade and socialism...sans Monsieur Depardieu
End the EU
It’s the ones at the top that want to keep the EU.
This crisis is specifically designed to induce national governments to surrender their sovereignty. It isn’t a natural crisis; it’s induced.
