German Unemployment Soars

There is no doubt that Germany is running into serious problems economy-wise. I doubt very much that the coming US base closings are going to help this situation, though the problems seem endemic to much of Europe. I guess the next time a European spoouts off about how many hours we in the US work and how little vacation we have, I'll have more of a rejoinder than, "We like to work."

It will be interesting to see how the reforms are taken by the people. I do wonder what is more important to them, their overall economy or their holidays?
