During the Great Migration Crisis of 2015, throwing the doors wide to the “refugees” was sold to the German people as a way to make up for a shortage of highly skilled workers in the country’s economy. Seven years later, the official government statistics reveal the nature of the scam that was foisted on the public: more than half of the migrants are unemployed and/or unemployable, and most of the rest are employed in low-skilled menial jobs (which means they provide little or no tax revenue).

Balance sheet after seven years
Wave of refugees: No skilled workers came
BERLIN. 893,000 of the Hartz IV migrants who came to Germany in the wake of the 2015/16 wave of refugees are still alive. 235,000 are unemployed and a further 437,000 are looking for work. Even of the 460,000 who have found work, more than half are employed in under-skilled jobs. This emerges from a response from the federal government to a request from AfD MP René Springer. He refers to statistics from the Federal Employment Agency and the eight most common asylum-seeker countries of origin: Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iraq, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia and Syria.
The proportion of “refugees” who live on standard benefits is almost twice as high as that of employees and has leveled off at around 50 percent. For Syrians, this figure is almost 60 percent. For comparison: the Hartz IV quota of the German population is 5.6 percent.
Hardly any skilled workers, specialists and experts
Even among the former migrants who were employed subject to social security contributions, 43.3 percent did not have a school-leaving or graduation certificate. The proportion employed in so-called “Helper” occupations, i.e. under-qualified jobs, is correspondingly high: 50.1 percent. Their share has even increased by 6.6 percentage points since January 2016. The Federal Employment Agency has no information on another 25 percent. The proportion of employees in the field of skilled workers, specialists and experts, on the other hand, continues to decline.
“Despite all the euphemisms from the Government and the established media, the massive immigration into our social systems can no longer be denied,” AfD parliamentarian Springer told Junge Freiheit. The billions in taxes that have been spent on integration measures so far have “largely and ineffectively evaporated”.
There is no hope of improvement, because out of the current total of 670,000 job seekers and unemployed, almost 88 percent have no professional qualifications. About four percent have professional training and 7 percent have academic training.
A look at the training events is also sobering. Of the approximately 25,000 applicants for a training place from the top eight asylum countries of origin, 15,000 applicants (60 percent) remained unplaced.
Afterword from the translator:
At the beginning of 2020, the head of the BAMF admitted: “We were aware that only a few skilled workers would arrive via the escape route.”
Even back then, common sense said that the “skilled workers and academics” line couldn’t be true, especially when you look at the countries they’re coming from. But nonetheless they narrated: what the refugees bring is more valuable than gold — the economic miracle — secure pensions — skilled workers — a high level of education — the gross national product is increasing, etc. That all of this was untrue should have been clear to many German citizens, one hopes. Also the politicians knew exactly who was and what was coming down onto the people. After all, it was all about implementing the EU migration plan, and “professionals” play as little of a role in the Narrative as the truth with Covid.
Merkel at the time: “We have to accept that crime among young refugees will be particularly high.” Anyone who says something like that knows exactly what’s going on and what will happen. Unfortunately the sheeple in Germany didn’t get it then, and I rather doubt they ever will.
