Study: E-mobility and transition to bus and train can create new jobs-transition

A recent study for the Federal Government comes to the conclusion that the conversion on electric drives in Germany could cost hundreds of thousands of jobs. The ecological transport club VCD criticizes that with such terror scenarios before the car mood was made in the automotive industry.

“Especially the IG Metall is now the enforcement of short-time allowance, qualification and retraining measures. This should also be laminated the previous failure of industry and trade unions in the transformation. The measures are generally correct and important, but could have been demanded and initiated much earlier.”- Michael Muller-GOrnert, traffic policy speakers of the VCD

The course towards emission-free and-free drives have already been made before a long time ago. But the industry has captured too long at the old business model with internal combustion engines criticized the VCD. “The connection to the future technologies such as electromobility and autonomous driving threatens to go lost,” says Muller-GOrnert. “If this costs now workplaces, it is too self-responsible for big parts.”

Fewer cars are produced in Germany, because automobile manufacturers increasingly relocate their production abroad. For example, BMW and Mercedes produce some new electric models in China. That it is different, the Volkswagen Group show. The fully electric ID3 is manufactured in Germany and secures jobs. Instead of whining, the industry, but should the unions finally go to the offensive and control the future, so the VCD in a current message. Only then the German automotive industry are competitive and the jobs there future-proof.

Other mobility industries are meanwhile familiar with staff: not only bus drivers and train operators are in short supply, also electronics, engineers, IT specialists and service boards are missing. Only the Deutsche Bahn place currently more than 50.000 new employees. Why should people in auto production do not build rail vehicles in the future, the VCD casts? Already 20 years ago, the VCD has created a study along with the Eco Institute, which shows that a road turning new jobs creates instead of abolishing it. “We have to look out the box of the car industry and look at the big whole, but it needs determination and vision.”

  1. I see it the same way.
    There are also greatly many employees in various other industries …such as building construction, civil engineering, infrastructure and of course all technical trades and crafts.
    As well as software development and the complete area of digitization to the planning industry.
    Not to mention the health and care area.

  2. Clearly: instead of short-time working allowance to pay with the prospect of later dismissal in unemployment, systematically retraining must be operated. This also saves recruitment abroad with all the related problems.

  3. Special economy is called this in Bavaria.
    Today, as many cars in Germany are produced as never before.
    The call to Ingeeuren is all know.
    If our families in Germany would better support and the training would be better,
    We would have sufficiently qualified workers from their own families.
    if only every second German citizen would think like our politicians,
    Could we have twisted a long time
    Franz Zehangemaier

  4. Basically, I see it that way. However, you have to see that the massively superior technique is significantly less or. Easier service needs. This is of course work away!
