German region struggles to fill jobs amid labour shortage


As the jobless rate in Germany’s southwestern state of Baden-Wüttemberg falls below 4 percent, the dearth of qualified workers means businesses are struggling to fill vacant positions.

An increasing number of businesses are now betting on the recent influx of refugees from countries like Syria to find workers.
