I lived in Ireland for three years but moved to Germany 10 years ago.
He are so harsh facts :
1, unless he has a piece of paper stating what jobs he can do it is hard.
2, even with that paper work here is difficult 95% of jobs I see anywhere are mini-jobs, 400 euro,or though a time firm
3, In small towns mine has 30,000 there is little English spoken ,and sorry I don't mean to sound racist but now I hear more people speaking Russian,Polish ect than German when I go shopping,and jobs look for people who speak it too.
Just got a letter about a download I made ,the lawyers from a firm in Karlsruhe sent me a bill for 450 euro for one record , I don't know what my next step is ,is there anybody out there who can help as I'm not so good at reading German law (or a good web page may help).
