Germany’s Effort to Integrate Refugees Into Workforce an Epic Failure

At the height of the refugee crisis that saw a million people flood into Germany, the government asked companies large and small to make an effort to hire the newcomers. The thinking was that integrating the refugees into the workforce would be the best way to begin the assimilation process.

Dutifully, the German business community tried to accommodate the government. They scouted refugee shelters and utilized job centers.

The results of this effort should be a lesson — and a warning — to other nations that employ an open-door policy on refugees.

    They only want bountiful welfare, or a government sinecure.

    The catastrophic cost of supporting this epic failure will have implications for this generation and the next. It is a lesson for all western countries. Islam’s hirjah is nothing less than a parasite invading and consuming host.

    I know hindsight is 20/20 but basic common sense would have predicted that. A million, mostly illiterate people from failed states, espousing a medieval culture are having trouble easing into technical, 21st century jobs. What are all the government sociologists, demographers, economists, labor specialists doing?

      To me the business elites are aiding and abetting to buy time for the robots
      Once these go online and produce stuff, the business elites just won’t care and can hide in their gated communities with armed contractors.
