Germany rejected 27,000 foreigners’ job offers last year: report

Americans and other non-EU citizens who already have job offers in Germany must also have their positions approved by the government. But 27,000 were not so lucky last year, according to a new report.

The Federal Employment Agency (BA) denied approval for the job offers of around 27,000 foreigners last year because their work could arguably be performed by a German, or because the job paid too little, according to the Rheinische Post on Friday.

That figure was more than double the number from two years before.

The newspaper cited a government response to a parliamentary question from the Green party.

Over the past two years, the number of applications for job offer approvals from refugees and other non-EU citizens has risen greatly, according to the BA.

The number of requests that were approved roughly tripled, from about 68,000 in 2014 to 215,000 in 2016.
