    Abstract

    Aufgrund der Tatsache, dass die Arbeitslosenquote Hochqualifizierter in Deutschland in den vergangenen 30 Jahren durchschnittlich 3% betrug, beschäftigt sich dieser Beitrag mit Theorien, die die Heterogenität von Arbeit berücksichtigen. Im Ergebnis kann eine Reduktion der Arbeitskosten die Arbeitslosenquote der Geringqualifizierten nicht substantiell senken. Von Erheblicher Bedeutung ist, dass das skill upgrading der Arbeitsnachfrage in den vergangenen 30 Jahren stärker gewachsen ist, als das des Arbeitsangebotes. Die Zukunft der Arbeit in Deutschland liegt nicht in gering vergüteten Geringqualifiziertentätigkeiten, sondern im Tätigkeitsbereich Hochqualifizierter. --
