Bundestag Urged to Send Ukrainians to Work – 80% Spend Their Holidays in Germany on Allowance

More than 80 per cent of Ukrainian refugees living in Germany do not work. This was stated by the head of the parliamentary faction of the CDU Alexander Dobrindt.

Dobrindt criticised the current practice of cash payments to Ukrainian refugees, Tagesschau.de reports.

“Less than 20 per cent of Ukrainians living in Germany have a job. In the Netherlands, the figure is over 70 per cent, and even more in Poland. This shows that Germany offers the wrong incentives,” Dobrindt told Welt am Sonntag.

Almost two years after the start of the Ukrainian conflict, it is time to address the issue, he said.

“The priority should be to provide every adult Ukrainian refugee with a job offer. If a job is rejected, benefits should be reduced. Ukrainian refugees should be assisted under the Asylum Seekers’ Benefits Act for the first few months. At the same time, if the offer is accepted, the process of employment should begin so that citizens will no longer need to pay benefits,” the faction head said.

As the media reported, 63% of Germans expect from the FRG authorities a more consistent practice of deporting migrants, 32% support their forced return even in crisis zones. These are the results of a recent opinion poll, which INSA conducted before the meeting on migration policy.
