Abu-BaghdadiIt's important to remember that in 19 out of 20 European countries, mass migration will benefit the economy in the long run.
A month or two ago there was a report for German paper Die Welt entitled "The Truth about the Refugee Job Wonder" that asked if German Chancellor Angela Merkel's pronouncement that migrants will be the "labour revitalisation" of Germany is actually true?
It turns out Syrians, Afghans and Iraqis are more likely to be unemployed than the average German by a large margin.
The Institute for Employment Research (IAB)(1) has conducted research into migrant employment rates and found that in the case of Syrians their employment rate has dropped from 32 percent to only 9 percent as recently as last November.
Afghanis and Iraqis, who are increasingly becoming a larger proportion of migrants coming into the EU according to Frontex, don't fare much better, with Afghan employment participation going from 37.6 percent to 24.5 percent and Iraqi employment going down from 34 percent to 25.3 percent over the same five year period.
To put this in perspective, the employment rate of the average German is 67.3 percent.
Migrants have an especially difficult time and even those with professional qualifications tend to have a hard time becoming employed due to differences in culture, language barrier, nationally recognised qualifications and the incentive. The amount of time to enter the workforce presents huge problems for the welfare system that the migrants are thought to be able to prop up.
Migration in Western European countries that already have all tiers of labour covered receive no economic benefits from migration. For example the labour market participation and educational level of all generations of Turks and Moroccans, the largest minorities of non-European Economic Area origin in Germany/Netherlands since the 1960s, remains low, especially among women.
Also, Turkish unemployment in Germany/Netherlands is higher than average.
It won't suddenly solve itself in the next decade by education and by then you have spent hundreds of thousands on maybe a a single person.
Professional narcissistic asshole, always right, never wrong.
