Economic boss speaks plain text: trade unions chase away German companies abroad

"German unions to give the greatest effort to chase away as many of the companies abroad, by setting up unreasonable demands for the Collective bargaining," said the 87-year-old family business in an Interview. "The cost to produce in Germany, meanwhile, are simply much too high. Therefore, we can no longer manufacture certain products in Germany“, commented Stihl. As an example, he led the family-owned motor saws companies: in the Meantime, his company would have to reasons the products cost to produce three-quarters abroad.

Stihl was from 1988 to 2001, and chief of the German of industry and Commerce, tags, today's German chambers of industry and Commerce (DIHK). As a family entrepreneur, Stihl made the eponymous chainsaw manufacturer from Waiblingen to a billion-dollar company before he retired a few years ago in the operational area. The company has around 17,000 employees and 2018, made a turnover of 3.8 billion euros.

"the CDU has to catch up in economic and tax policy,"

Also with the work of the Federal government, Stihl is dissatisfied, at Least in economic matters, he shares the view of Ex-Union parliamentary leader Friedrich Merz (CDU), the appearance of the coalition, it was "bad". If Merz plays with his criticism of the economic policy of the CDU, and he did not wrong. "The CDU has an urgent need to catch up in terms of market-based economic and tax policy. If the party does not recognize this pent-up demand, then you will enter the next Bundestag election of another heavy defeat.“

Merz had referred to the appearance of the Federal government in the fall as "bad", and especially Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) is responsible made. Stihl said: "He has placed the Finger in the right wound." There is a need, for example, a corporate tax reform, family firms make more competitive. "Mrs Merkel has done in this direction, nothing. And that is why it is right that he used the word "suck"." If Merkel keep on like this, "the CDU must put on warm clothes at the next Federal election".

Kühnert Stihl calls a "Yeller"

from the left pivot by the Union coalition partner, the SPD and the emerging party Deputy Kevin Kühnert Stihl holds little. "The screamer Kühnert, which is currently in great favor with the SPD, will make the party completely ready", he predicted.
