For engineers in France, there is always a claim for a "shortage of skilled workers" while at the same time we saw the skilled workers not finding work.

The reality is numbers are not given by an independent entity, but by already in place oligopolies, where they typically simply add the number of offers on websites to estimate the "shortage", with the same offers often being published in 10 places or more.

This allows the recruiting of less paid people from the south or east and maintains a welcome down pressure on salaries.

PS: I'm not discussing this strategy, every entity does what it can to survive in our overtaxed world, but it's just that I don't want to eat the "numbers" supporting a shortage too naively.
