The case of Germany

Migrant workers accounted for 6.8% of all employees liable to social security contributions in 2006. However, from 2003 to 2006 the unemployment rate for migrants was approximately twice as high as for Germans.

The promotion of migrant workers at the workplace is additionally supported in regional projects and at the establishment level.
