Half of Turks in Germany Do Not Work, Majority ‘Not Interested in a Job’

Figures show that almost every second Turk of working age in Germany is “economically inactive”, meaning they are either not in work or officially registered as unemployed.

The latest data from European statistics bureau Eurostat shows that 43 per cent of Turks living in Germany are economically inactive, a figure which rises to 48 per cent according to the country’s Federal Statistics Office.

    That seems extremely optimistic based upon my experiences here meeting members of that group who think they are entitled to more than Canadians just because of their “religion” and without contributing a thing or lifting a finger to help themselves beyond applying for government benefits multiple times under different aliases.

    That is stats for the Turks in Germany, now what are the employment stats for the 1.5 million invaders since mad Merkel opened the doors? Medium/long term prospects for Germany don’t look too good

      You’re onto something, the Turks have the best track record of employment of all islamic immigrants by far.
      The 1.5 million invaders score in the single procents.

    It’s almost as if racial/cultural profiling was a sane and useful thing.

      What do you mean, “almost as if” ?

    Hard work is a White European concept. Also discovered independently by East Asians.

    So much for the the idea importing labor that the native born population won’t do.
