According to Spiegel, in 2004 alone 150 000 Germans have left their country in order to find jobs abroad. These people are usually well educated and young and are looming for better ways to make a living. German doctors leave for England, IT experts for Australia and scientist for America. It’s not that those professionals feel they are pioneers and want to move, they just find better conditions for work elsewhere.
This tendency is growing. In 2005 four time as many Germans left their country for a new job, than did in 2000. Social reforms, not enough job offers and unequal pay makes them emigrate to better pastures.
