In spite of refugee migration and global economic risks the German labour market proved to be the economic anchor of Stability. “2016 was a strong year for the labor market, better than 2015 and better than we expected,” said the head of the Federal Agency for work (BA), Frank-Jürgen Weise, on Tuesday in Nuremberg. At the same time, he dampened expectations for 2017: “After the year 2016, we aim to repeat the Good.” In the face of already historically low unemployment, it would be a success, if they would not rise.
