Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You have a point, I should have explained this better. The old market rules were fencing an old generation of workers in their jobs while casting younger generations to precarious, and illegal, contracts. Liberalising of the market may put an end to this, but won't do nothing to close the trade deficit or reform our secondary and primary sectors.

For more details please read this log on the reasons that lead me to leave.

P.S.: I'll be in Ludwigsburg thonight, no RTP there :(

The way it's being done in Spain, it appears there reform will indeed not put an end to the "dual labour market". The trend now seems to be that yound people should work for free and never expect a long-term contract, while making the position of the workers on existing long-term contracts more precarious (contracts are now easier to break by employers). But the dual labour market remains.

You should look at unemployment for the over-fifties in countries like France.

The market rule is only use people in their most productive years.
