Germany needs immigrants, otherwise its economic growth will slow down considerably. Experts estimate that in about ten years there will be a shortage of around three million trained skilled workers. The new immigration law is designed to address this problem. German chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet is due to approve legislation that should help skilled workers from outside the European Union find jobs in Germany. The proposed law would simplify the process for recognizing professional or vocational training degrees that have been earned abroad. It would eliminate the requirement that employers check whether German nationals are also available to fill the vacancy. And it would allow qualified non-EU nationals who speak German to live in the country while they look for work.
