Despite the labor regulations many millions Pols work already there illegally. Even if more Poles leave, I think they will be the less educated ones. Germans are not so eager to hire foreigners in white collar jobs. And with all the "Failure of Multi-Kulti" propaganda it might really be not the best place to emmigrate to right now anyway.

I'm sure it's going to be alright. People will work in Germany and spend money in Poland, Stuff will even up after a few years. I think it's a great idea.

I really think the majority of Germany is pretty sensible and civilized, but I suspect that the Germans who belong to working-class aren't too happy with all this labour-migration. (And I can't say I blame them!)

That doesn't include Angela Merkel I suppose, given her recent speach

Actually there are quite a few Poles working white collar jobs, particularly in IT. I think if anyone will go to Germany, it'll be the white collar workers. There isn't much difference in salary for illegal manual labor and legal manual labor...and Germany isn't exactly strict on enforcing employment laws concerning manual labor.

I'm taking BBs job in 2011.

The helmet market has taken a real beating lately, might want to reconsider.

I already received two offers from Germany and one from Switzerland - so I guess there must be loads of companies looking for Polish employees, if they even managed to dig up my old CV in England.

Plus its not illegal to work there if you have an invitation, sort of like in Poland.

Absolutely, I've been offered numerous roles despite the fact I don't speak German (but I think i'm subject to different rules as a UK national, I was referring more to the IT aspect)

She who must be obeyed refuses point blank to go to Germany, I won't go into her reasons why.

The larger companies in Germany are protected by the workers councils, who wouldn't allow new hiring at lower pay rates. The engine of Germany's economy are the hidden champion SMEs who do specialized work and usually have very strong employee-management relationships.

I think that is the big difference between the labor market in say the UK and Germany. It seems like in the UK, employees are more interchangeable than in Germany. Granted, that is changing in Germany as well, but it still seems to be a much tighter relationship than in a lot of other places (Poland included).

I can assure you they all will eventually come back, when they notice that they can't fulfill their professional aspirations just because they are from Eastern Europe. Whey Siemens corporate research center is in the States, full of Indian, Chinese, and Eastern European engineers? I happen to know a few of those people. They all say the same thing: Germans don't respect talent as much as Americans do. Over there it's more about the nationality, the skin color, etc. They will give you a job, let you work, that's for sure. But in 10 years you will be pretty much where you have started.

You need a helmet for that!

Best chances for skilled laborers...german/english languages preferred...

Engineers are especially sought after!

Just look at all the issues and problems between people, and then tell me that it has been a success? On top of all that, we have labour migration, and it's no mystery everyone wants to migrate to the same countries. What do you think will happen if we continue with that? Just look at cities like London, because I've heard even immigrants want to leave now! So do you have any better alternatives? Or should I migrate to Kenia because all of Kenia wants to live here? I mean, where does it end?

...not to mention that Merkels final acceptance of failed multi-kulti wasn't meant against european kultis. It's not Europeans we have problems with!

Me thinks you Marynka have issues with Germany?

Germans don't respect talent as much as Americans do

My arse, what a stupid statement! How do you think Germany got where it is if it wouldn't respect talent???

Most went over in the 90s and established themselves.

It's one of many research centers. Same goes for Erlangen. Quite a few South Americans there as well.

Browse through some of the profiles on xing, should clear up that misconception.

OK, AJ, you did not understand me. I have real issue with how the speach was worded.
If she stood there and said, "Listen people, we have a real problem, our social system is crumbling into pieces, we practically can't take any more people in, so this are the proposed laws that will help us regulate the immigration problem." Instead she just said, "Multi-Kulti has failed. There, I said what you all think."

And given the fact that Thilo Saraziin is a very well selling author right now, I'm really worried that it all will cause more and more issues between the foreigners and the society that none of this contributes to any constructive solutions.

It's not Europeans we have problems with!

Of course you don't have problems with Europeans. Just with the Eastern Europeans.

Interesting - Germany wants Polish engineers? I've always thought that Germany
excells in all engineering areas, and now they want us to work for them?

We never have enough!

Of course you don't have problems with Europeans. Just with the Eastern Europeans.

And here I thought Eastern Europeans were also Europeans...my fault!

And given the fact that Thilo Saraziin is a very well selling author right now, I'm really worried that it all will cause more and more issues between the foreigners and the society that none of this contributes to any constructive solutions.

The first step to a solution for a problem is the acknowledgment of the existence of said problem.
In that regard we have to be grateful for Sarrazin. Now it's on the politicians...

PS: Even Sarrazins problems wasn't with Europeans (not even eastern Europeans)!

In business, Germans are interested in one thing, how best to make money. If Polish engineers are up for the job, and are willing to integrate into the environment, they get hired.

I'm not going to read it. It just stands there on the shelf, so I can look at that red cover
when I feel down in the dumps. Cheers me up immensely.

Ain't gonna happen. Poland is not what you would call a muslim firendly environment,
if you know what I mean :) Besides, our social welfare is non-existent compared
to German, Irish or French, so they will rather go to Western Europe than Poland.

You are The Good German, I have to give you that.

I think Sarrazin is the problem. Just look what you said yourself, he doesn't have a problem with the Europeans, with whom then? With the Muslims, with the darker sinned ones, with the people who sell fruit on the corner? I'm just waiting for the Kristallnacht to happen again.

Not necessarily. I can imagine Poland getting rich, but still not giving away lots of welfare
money to third world immigrants. It's only common sense, really. We will learn from your
mistakes.

IIRC he didn't have anything bad to say about Polish people, he even singled them out as examples of successful integration.

The problem immigrants are mostly muslims with low social capital who are very resistant to those things that would help them gain social capital (education and intergration) but not resistant to accepting state handouts.

It's a similar situation to that of gypsy populations in Slovakia and Hungary.
