The majority of new migrants to Germany have no job qualifications or professional training, according to new figures released by the Federal Employment Agency.

As reported by the Breitbart London online, the report reveals that 74% of migrants registered in June had no vocational or professional training. And over a third of the migrants (36.8%) had little or no secondary school education either.

These figures could put a further challenge to German lawmakers who assured the public that most migrants would be easily able to transition into highly skilled jobs that the country desperately needs filled, according to Breitbart London.

The issue presents a huge problem for Germany’s government who face a large skills shortage in many industries. Only 4% of the migrants, some 12,000, have the required knowledge to enter the workforce and even then only after the required languages courses which can take months to complete.
