France is enjoying its strongest economic growth in six years.

However, many employers, especially in manufacturing and industry, are struggling to meet the demands of their customers because they can’t recruit the qualified staff they need.

Some economists say this shortage of skilled workers could slow growth.

Al Jazeera’s Natacha Butler reports from Rueil-Malmaison, France.

No one is to blame but the young men of France. For whatever reason they dont want to work these jobs and stay unemployed. But I was once like the young men in the video learning a trade here in Canada. Are class rooms were filled with young and even some older men learning trades. And it was a mix bunch of white, black, brown, and asian guys. We all loved learning and couldnt wait to work.

Reducing labor restrictions… (the workers will learn to regret it!)

R Greenup says:

lol yes, more immigrants but next time use a brain and select those who can contribute and who won't be a burden on the social services. Euro 'let 'em all in' policy is stupid beyond belief, by all means help the disadvantaged but do that in their country not yours.

The French need to reform their tax system and work laws for their economy to boom. For heaven sake they need to cut their corporate tax and small business taxes to attract more businesses to set up shop in France and create jobs. France has a lot of potential!

Sales and forklift drivers are not what I would call "skilled" professions: they're very boring, uninteresting, fairly repetitious activities and often badly paid!
