Actually, more people at work do not necessarily mean more bottlenecks and fewer opportunities for the younger generation. Otherwise, countries with a large workforce would be worse off than smaller countries. But in Europe, Germany has the largest workforce and also low unemployment, especially among the youth. The cake is not fixed, it keeps growing! There are, however, some sectors where the opportunities are more restricted. I am surprised, however, that Lufthansa pilots are a good example. Weren’t their striking to maintain their right to retire early? And if young pilots don’t have sufficient opportunities in Germany they would have in other parts of the world where airlines are expanding rapidly, especially in Asia.
