dc.description.abstractThe paper empirically examines three possible reasons for the high and rising unemploymentof low-skilled employees in Germany: (i) an upsurge in interindustry trade, (ii) a skill-biasedtechnical change, and (iii) a failure of labour market adjustment. The empirical analysesindicate that an exogenous wage-setting process as well as a bundle of factors, including askill-biased technical and structural change, have contributed to the decline in relative demandfor low-skilled employees in Germany. Thus, economic policy in Germany should focus onimproving the employability of workers in the lower segment of the labour market and onraising the adjustment flexibility, above all the flexibility of the wage structure, of the Germanlabour market.en_US
