Training professions: Many apprentices complain about overtime

More than a third of trainees in Germany have to make regular overtime, about half of m have to be reachable for trainers and trainers. This is shown by current training report of German Trade Union Confederation (DGB), for which 14,959 apprentices from 25 most common vocational training professions were consulted. The DGB laments an increasing flexibility pressure under which young people are standing.

The start of training year shows that companies continue to have problems finding suitable candidates. This year too, ZehntausendeAusbildungsplätze will remain vacant. The training report shows a possible reason for this: Thus, young people's worries have industries that are known for "miserable training conditions and poor remuneration," says Deputy DGB chairman Elke Hannack, who calls hotel and Catering trade, retail and parts of craft as exemplary.

In addition, 2018 for first time in years re have been only statistically fewer applications than jobs in company training. According to Federal Employment Agency, more than 530,000 apprenticeships were reported by July, but re were only around 500,000 interested parties. Because numbers of pupils are declining, while demand from companies to Mitarbeiternsteigt.

As a result, apprenticeship positions remained vacant this year – almost 49,000, according to vocational training report. This is despite fact that, last year, number of young people who started training has risen again for first time in years. Data from Federal Statistical Office show that this is mainly due to fact that many refugees have started training. Neverless, almost 25,000 applicants remained without an apprenticeship, because companies and potential apprentices did not zueinanderfanden.

Shift service, rest periods, overtime

The trend has fallen slightly from 72 to around 70 percent and is very strongly dependent on industry: administrative staff, mechatronics and industrial mechanics are particularly satisfied, hotel professionals, dental specialists as well as trainees in Retail and in parts of craft, on or hand, assess working conditions and remuneration in ir factories as particularly bad. The average training allowance for all years and occupations is currently 766 euros.

In addition, working hours are: Accordingly, 80 percent of trainees Hotelfachfrauenund specialist sellers in food trade work in shift service. For every second, legal rest period is not met, many would have to work on weekends too.

According to DGB, this also explains a high rate of abortion in training courses – according to vocational training report, it was last of every fourth apprentice. However, in about half of se cases trainees change to anor training place. The share of pure abortions was between 12 and 13 percent.

Hannack called on federal government to launch announced amendment to Vocational Training Act. Among or things, a minimum remuneration for trainees is required, for example in first year of training of at least 635 euros per month. This is not yet available.
