Germany needs 260,000 immigrant workers every year
Posted on June 29, 2019
Germany requires minimum 260,000 immigrant workers every year till 2060. This is in order to cater to the shortages of workers owing to demographic decrease. This has been revealed by a study for the labour market in Germany.
Out of this figure, nearly 146,000 immigrant workers will have to arrive in Germany from outside the EU. This is as per the research study made public by the Bertelsmann Foundation, as quoted by the DW.
The labour force in Germany is projected to decline by 1/3rd or roughly 16 million workers owing to the aging population by 2060. This is in the absence of immigration. This shortage of labour can have a disastrous impact on the 4th largest economy in the world.
As per the calculated circumstances, the birth rate is rising as per the researchers. The number of women workers has increased and the pension age has moved higher to reach 70 years.
It has been estimated by the study that 114,000 individuals would migrate from other EU nations. However, this will be impacted by economic convergence and demographic factors within the bloc of 28 nations. This will decrease the incentive for immigrant workers to reside and work in Germany.
Bertelsmann Foundation executive director Jörg Dräger elaborated on the figures. He said that the official figures reveal that just 38,000 workers arrived and remained in Germany.
The research was held by University of Coburg and Institute for Employment Research.
