Within the next 15 years, half of all German workers will become pensioners, the Bertelsmann Institute warns in a study published Friday. Without immigrants, Germany’s labor pool is likely to shrink from current its 45 million to 29 million people (or 36 percent) by 2050.
Germany expects up to 300,000 migrants to arrive this year
Frank-Juergen Weise told newspaper Bild An Sonntag: “We’re preparing for 250,000 to 300,000 refugees this year.”
He added that if more people were to come, his office would come under pressure but suggested he was not worried about such a scenario, saying it was instead likely that fewer than 300,000 would come this year.
Do not worry, Mutti Merkel will invite more.
