Germany’s new law on the immigration of skilled workers, which aims to provide easier access to the German labour market for qualified workers from non-EU countries, will come into force on 1 March. But some experts believe the new law is insufficient and NGOs consider it ignores those already living in Germany. EURACTIV Germany reports.
The German economy suffers from a lack of skilled workers, which acutely threatens its growth.
While things are changing on paper, only two of the changes will have a noticeable effect in practice, explained labor market expert Herbert Brücker at an event organized by Mediendienst Integration, a media service for journalists interested in migration issues.
Skilled workers with vocational qualifications will be put on an equal footing with university graduates. They will be allowed to enter the country to work, something which has so far only been done for so-called ‘problem professions’.
Moreover, as of 1 March, it will be largely irrelevant whether Germans or EU citizens are already available for a vacant position.
