Scholz urged German employers to hire more Ukrainian refugees

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz believes that German employers should be more active in employing refugees from Ukraine, since many Ukrainians coming to Germany are qualified personnel, TASS reports


Addressing German employers, Scholz noted, “I would like to make an appeal for you to help provide those Ukrainians who live here with wages and prosperity. This is of great importance for recognition from the population and for the prospects of Ukrainians who remain here.”

The Chancellor mentioned survey results showing that about 80 percent of refugees from Ukraine are more or less highly qualified.

Over a million Ukrainian refugees currently live in Germany.
