Bilanz der Erwerbschancen fünf Jahre nach der Wende in Ostdeutschland


Author Info

  • Gert G. Wagner


Fuenf Jahre nach dem Fall der Mauer hat sich fuer junge Menschen in den neuen Bundeslaendern eine Strukturierung der Erwerbstaetigkeit und Arbeitslosigkeit herausgebildet, die trotz einer offenen Jugendarbeitslosigkeit von etwa 10 vH relativ gute Arbeitsmarktchancen zeigt. Junge Menschen sind auch eher bereit, in den Westen zu pendeln oder umzuziehen. Fuer die Generation der Personen, die bei der Wende 45 bis 55 Jahre alt waren, sind die Arbeitsmarktchancen indes deutlich schlechter. Nur 8 vH der zum Zeitpunkt der Wende 55jaehrigen und aelteren Erwerbstaetigen waren im November 1994 noch erwerbstaetig. Unterscheidet man die Arbeitsmarktchancen nach Bundeslaendern, so sind die Unterschiede zwischen den neuen Bundeslaendern relativ klein, wenn man nur die Arbeitsplaetze in den neuen Bundeslaendern betrachtet und Westpendeln sowie Umzuege in den Westen ausser Betracht laesst.
