East Germany claimed they built the wall to keep West Berliners from crossing over and taking jobs in East Berlin. When in reality there were many people who lived in East Berlin, but worked in West Berlin, because there were more, better paying jobs there. When costs of living in the East Berlin outweighed the benefits people moved to West Berlin. Since East Germany was losing their best people they built the wall.
