Germany: 40 percent of welfare recipients are foreigners

At least 40 percent of all welfare recipients in German are foreigners, costing German taxpayers more than 4 billion euros every month to pay for the food, education, medicine, and shelter of 2.7 non-contributing foreigners living in the country, new official reports have revealed.

According to new figures released by Germany’s Federal Employment Agency, three out of four working-age Syrians living in Germany are supported entirely or partially by the country’s welfare system, Hartz IV, Die Welt reports.

As of June 2018, the official unemployment rate for Syrians in Germany was 44.2 percent, slightly down from last year’s figure of 49.6 percent.

However, as the report points out, the figure isn’t exactly truthful because Syrian migrants who attend state-funded ‘integration courses’ or ‘vocational language courses’ are not regarded as unemployed, but instead as ‘underemployed persons.’ 

Those who attend these courses are also paid a certain amount by the Hartz IV system.
