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.
