A recent study found that almost 90% of refugees are still not working after 2 1/2 years in The Netherlands.

The refugees found that they make as much money sitting at home as they do at low skilled jobs.

A 2017 study found similar numbers in Austria.
And a German study found only 1 in 5 refugees were working.

Refugees with a residence permit barely have a job, Dutch newspaper “De Telegraaf” reports. Almost 90% of refugees, who received their residence permit in 2014, were unemployed two and a half years later, according to figures from the Dutch statistics office CBS.

While 11% of refugees do work, a large majority of them still don’t have a full-time job. After two and a half years only 15% are fully employed. The group mostly consists of Syrians and Eritreans: 75% of refugees come from one of those two countries.

It’s the same in Canada. Refugees, now entering Canada, are getting a package worth $4,700 per month. I only wished I could get that much as an elderly person on government pension?
