The case of Germany
This report intends to investigate the employment and working conditions of migrant workers. The general objective is to compare the employment and working conditions of non-nationals and nationals.
In the 25 years between 1994 and 2019, the number of minors in Germany fell by 14.2 percent and in the EU-27 (excluding the United Kingdom) by 15.1 percent. However, the trends were very different.
Although the period of the strongest influx of refugees in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany is five years ago, more asylum seekers have come to Germany in recent years than at the beginning of the 2010s.
In recent years there has been a very high level of immigration to Germany from the countries that joined the EU in 2004. On 31.12.2019 the total number of persons with the citizenship of these countries was 2.86 million, which was 744,000 more than on 31.12.2015 with 2.11 million.
