The Federal Republic of Germany has a first Problem: Young people are missing professions in the care, while at the same time, the demand for trained professionals continues to increase. The wages are low and working conditions are sometimes unacceptable. Nursing staff costs in relation to their services rendered downright outrageous little. Adequate wages is likely to mean for the employer is not a great expense when you consider what a full-time caregiver is doing everything in one day. Below-average wages, however, are not even the biggest Problem, to fight with the nursing Guild.
