Most refugees to stay jobless for years – German minister

Up to three-quarters of refugees in Germany will still be unemployed in five years’ time, according to the country’s commissioner for refugee integration Aydan Ozoguz.

She told the Financial Times that Germany faces challenges in integrating its enormous migrant population.

According to Ozoguz, only a quarter to a third of the newcomers would enter the labor market over the next five years, and “for many others, we will need up to ten.”

Initially the influx of many working-age, highly-motivated immigrants spurred optimism that they would mitigate Germany’s acute skills shortage.

The CEO of carmaker Daimler Dieter Zetsche even said the refugees could lay the foundation for the “next German economic miracle.”

However, according to Ozoguz, time showed the migrants’ lack of qualifications and language skills.
