Angela Merkel is pushing Germany’s biggest companies to hire more refugees

German newspaper Bild is reporting that Chancellor Angela Merkel has invited executives from Germany's biggest companies to attend a summit next month where she will "urge" them to hire more refugees.

Angela Merkel is certainly stubborn, persistent, and very destructive for the future of Germany and the European Union.

In what can only be seen as a doubling down on a completely failed refugee policy, Germany’s Chancellor has invited executives from the country’s largest listed companies to attend a summit next month…where the misguided Merkel will persuade executives to hire more refugees.

Germany’s Bild newspaper is reporting that the Merkel government wants to get as many refugees into the job market as possible, so as to reduce their dependence on state hand outs, while compensating for labor shortages, as the German workforce ages.

Perhaps Europe’s neo-liberal model, where people are encouraged to move away from family creation and traditional values, has something to do with Germany’s insufficient labor population.

Bringing in migrants from countries that Germany has actively worked to destroy with NATO “democracy bombs” is surely the right way to plug up such workforce shortages.

Never mind the fact that German companies say most of the new arrivals lack the language skills and the education required for the jobs Merkel wants them to offer…political correctness must proceed unhindered, regardless the consequences. 

Reuters is reporting

More than one million migrants flooded into Germany last year, and the government wants to get as many as possible into the job market, which would reduce their dependence on the state and compensate for labor shortages as the workforce ages.

Merkel will push reluctant German companies to offer more traineeships and position to refugees, Bild reported. Large companies have been criticized for doing little to help integrate the refugees into the thriving job market.

Companies say most of the new arrivals lack the German language skills and the education required for a job.

Engineering giant Siemens (SIEGn.DE), chemicals group Evonik (EVKn.DE), carmakers Opel(GM.N) and VW(VOWG_p.DE) and utility RWE(RWEG.DE) will share with Merkel the results of pilot projects with refugees, Bild said.

Merkel’s office declined to confirm Bild’s report, which said the meeting at the chancellery will take place Sept. 14.

One month ago, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported that the 30 biggest DAX-listed companies had employed only 54 refugees until June, which includes 50 who were hired by logistics provider Deutsche Post.
