Is Germany one of the poorest Western European countries?
What a lot of people don't hear is that many Germans illegally immigrate to many countries overseas and have to take nanny jobs in other countries, especially America, because the economy is so dire over there. Why don't Americans ever read anything about this in the news? We are made to believe Germany is such a well-off, efficient first-world country, but many people say otherwise. I heard some people blame the reunification of West and East Germany, some have blamed the lack of a minimum wage there, but still, why does Germany still have so many problems?
