By Keith W Munday

Every responsible government wants to see full employment for its work-force. This virtually means that not more than 3% are unemployed. Few countries have ever attained this.

Britain has gone through times of mass unemployment, but things have gradually improved, and it seems that Germany is now having its problems along this line.

Even when unemployment is not on a national scale, individual companies can go to the wall because of the fluctuations of the market. Hundreds of employees can find themselves out of a job, and as individuals with families to support, it can be a traumatic experience. It may only be temporary, but they may not always be able to find a particular job to match their expertise or skills. It may also carry less remuneration, and they may have to travel to find it. All these things are a part of the unemployeds' anxieties.
