Spain -Pilot project for skilled migrants -May 16, 2013

The German journal Der Spiegel reports of a pilot program organised by the Chamber of Crafts for Munich and Upper Bavaria. The program aims to address the shortage of medium-skilled specialised workers among small- and medium-sized companies, considered to be the engine that keeps the German economy humming. Spaniards between the ages of 18 and 30 possessed of job training and work experience are paired with employers in and around Munich that have job openings. The program reflects a growing awareness among companies and trade unions that they, too, have a stake in the integration of immigrant workers. The program hopes to place at least 21 Spanish workers by the end of its pilot phase at the end of 2013.
