Thanks to its strong job market and targeted degree programs, Germany has one of the lowest rates of unemployment among OECD countries. And according to a survey released on last week, this has led Germans to worry a lot less about the problem of unemployment in their country. Just 15 percent of respondents said that unemployment was a top problem in Germany.
This contrasts sharply with the attitudes among other countries. Spaniards were the most worried, with 70 percent listing unemployment as a concern, followed by Italians at 66%. In the United States, the rate was 23%
