Summary: 

More than two years after Merkel fateful decision to open the country’s border to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, Germany still has an aging workforce, but migrants lining up to ease the country’s workforce demands are nowhere to be seen. The migrants, mostly Arab and Muslim man of fighting age, instead heeding the call of the Teutonic workforce, have taken refuge in the fatherland’s generous welfare system.

“More and more foreigners are dependent on the state. In past year, the number of foreigners seeking benefits has gone up by 25 percent,”  the leading German newspaper Bild Zeitung.

If the latest statistics released by the Germany’s Federal Labor Office are to be trusted, immigrants receiving unemployment benefits have hit record levels. For the first time this number reached almost the 2-million-mark. The figure turns even more staggering if one considers the fact that the total unemployment figure in Germany is currently below 2.5 million, according to the popular German statistical website .

German daily Bild Zeitung  the statistics release by the German Labor Office on Friday:

The number of foreigners receiving unemployment benefits (Hartz-IV) touches the 2-million-mark for the first time in Germany.

According to the Federal Office for Employment, there were 1,997,519 foreigners on the dole by the end of June, making it 406,570 or 25.6 percent more than in mid-2016.

Out of this number 1,49 million are [classified as] employable – that number has gone up by 20,2 percent, and 507,292 were not employable, a rise of 44,7 percent in that category. [Translation by the author].
