“We need immigration into our employment systems, not into our social systems,” stated the BDA boss. “We have to attract immigrants who want to work here and not just benefit from our social benefits. We currently have 5.6 million citizens' benefit recipients, a significant proportion of whom do not come from Germany. And we have a total of almost four million people in the citizen’s benefit system who can work – that’s too high.”

In order for the urgently wanted employees to reach within the firms, the main target should be far more on activating and inserting individuals in work, demanded the employer president.
