6:31 am
it's funny to say but still coming from from california so where i started. was over was there was a culture of recovery when i first given what some things like nothing's open. but the first step in my opinion that now where i'm going down and don't do it for a good many of us are learning german basically illustrates. have you ever thought about how privileged you are having to get up early in the morning and go to work well you should because having a job not only helps people pay their bills it also has them in society links them with others and can promote a sense of belonging and work is a powerful force for social inclusion not just when you're new to a place or a country inclusion ad work that's what we want to explore today on made while come
6:32 am
now than we need skilled workers that's what you hear more and more often from german business but skilled workers don't grow on trees and with germany being one of those aging societies typical for industrialized countries chances to fill vacancies with homegrown talent are slim at the same time germany offers high living standards and should therefore attract job applicants from all over the world but it can be tough for foreigners to settle here deal with the bureaucracy learn the language find a home and get a job how they cope listen for yourself. i studied automotive design and i wanted to work for books for. you my grapes because you're looking for a better opportunity. to import you can't tell me you like the weather it's. will make everything for this place as it's my home. edwards comes from south korea
6:33 am
from costa rica p.o. from mexico i'm like a from syria. they each came to germany for different reasons but overall major life for themselves here. at the beginning it was tough the most pressing issue was to find a job. that. was a bit. different but i suspect that no one takes you seriously at the beginning right and especially if you said i came with this background and i work here and there you can have your contacts back home but here you don't know anybody and it's hard for new arrivals to get a foot in the door of the german labor market. he has a work visa for professionals he studied automotive design in the united states and always dreamed of working for a german automaker. he did indeed get a job at folks under a visa but the job didn't turn out quite as he hoped my vision for. design
6:34 am
and where the company was kind of going was. it was a little bit different so trying to. adjust to that was kind of difficult i was just doing my thing and hoping that thing would be accepted but so many times i was not the case and eventually he started over and opened an asian male kid's store and by limb each kid contains a recipe and all the ingredients for a tasty dish which you just have to cook at home. i was living in a kind of a bubble but since i started my business. the local people i mean i know many of my customers by name. and feeling a lot more integrated to to to the community here. foreigners who want to live in germany need a work visa or a residency permit there are various pieces depending on country of origin
6:35 am
education and personal situation in germany provides a lot of opportunities in terms of bees are for people to talk to get a job here. and the marianne alvarez man who came to germany three and a half years ago she was married to a german so getting a visa wasn't a problem she studied law and worked for the finance ministry and public relations firms in costa rica but here she couldn't find a job. so she set up a platform called migration hope it provides support for migrants asylum seekers and refugees. were we what we want and what we aim is basically to support their livelihoods whether in the patient or employment and entering our ship most importantly is that microphone have an opportunity. the entrepreneur wants to change what she sees as a widespread perception that migrants are not just competent to stand even when they're just as qualified but. we need to change this narrative on that we are
6:36 am
whatever we are doing. because we're my friends we're not doing that in the germans are we are even harder because we have to do even a different language and get support. because we need to make sure that works. moving to a new country involves finding somewhere to live and making a higher. many challenges. me and my baby and my head. leaving one group i'm looking for. the civil war in syria where she had studied political science and literature. she started cooking more or less by chunks. of this place it's like syrian whole lot of. culture. and touch and.
6:37 am
she first. and meanwhile has her own restaurant. nothing in my life. nothing and also nothing it's possible. along with work founding a company and finding there's also the language to learn. german it's totally. forgotten it all so international and everybody speaks english and mark job doesn't help either because even the germans here speak spanish. it's love . from mexico city he's a graphic designer but his career here without having mastered the language is hard if not downright impossible. we were.
6:38 am
my job consisted of talking to clients and developing ideas with the moment here because i don't speak german. my talents were of no use. as anyone who's ever moved to a new country soon finds out things don't always go to plan expecting the unexpected is a good for all of them. my mother actually comes from a region that today is part of poland so in a way i have a migration background too and i'm no exception almost a quarter of the people living in germany were born elsewhere or have foreign roots let's take a look at who they are and how they fare on the labor market. of germany's eighty two million inhabitants nineteen point three million have what's called a migrant background but what exactly does that mean. if
6:39 am
you have a migrant background it means your roots on german you might have a different language or culture or not belong to the country's biggest religion christianity in germany people who were born here but whose family came here two or three generations ago are also said to have a migrant background sixteen percent of the german population were actually born elsewhere and emigrated to germany two thirds of them come from outside the e.u. in twenty sixteen people from nanda e.u. countries came to germany for four main reasons. the number one reason they were seeking asylum fleeing war in terror for example. who they came to join family members who were already here. three they came to get a qualification. and full they were looking for work. and of course not all migrants or people with migrant backgrounds have the same
6:40 am
chances on the labor market they have differing levels of education. approximately thirty. hundred percent never completed school and some thirty eight percent haven't finished any book ational training. migrants tend to have fewer qualifications than germans and have greater difficulty finding work. in germany sixty seven percent of migrants are employed the employment rate among germans is much higher. but not enough skilled workers are moving to germany fewer than ten thousand people who move from nonnie new countries to germany each year have an academic degree. the german labor market desperately needs more highly qualified employees. germany isn't europe of course other members are also worth checking out like poland the eastern european country is what you have guessed it popular among indian students but just like in
6:41 am
many other parts of europe economic migrants aren't always welcome there with open arms even though their skills need it so where does that leave our indian students and their future prospects let's go to the polish capital walsall and find out. tench patel delivers up to twenty meals a day to his customers he works for eats delivering takeout meals and he's from india and has been in the polish capital warsaw for three years he came to the e.u. on a student visa. if you go anywhere. right now this if you don't have any legalised. anywhere he's one of a number of indians who live in warsaw his friend cartel is actually a pharmacist but he has to deliver takeout food as well his polish isn't good
6:42 am
enough to work in a pharmacy. i have i really know it's hard like this there. were nearly. but i have no problem for. poland had a command economy until one thousand nine hundred nine the entire economy was dictated by the state now private companies are booming and they're desperately searching for workers. they depend on foreigners coming to poland for work and not just highly qualified people companies also need drivers and other unskilled workers. indians are still in a very small minority on the streets of warsaw. the two young men share a room me test does most of the cooking he tried opening his own restaurant in poland and even dropped out of his studies to do so. but me talk doesn't see that as an option. if i mean this is my but i'm really good because
6:43 am
there are lots of really getting there. if you only way you came here. at this private university of business and. economics just outside war so half the students are foreigners many of them come from india. they pay a thousand euros per semester. was. for us. so. right now roughly equal soon graduates from her medicine management studies she's a dentist and worked as one for two years in india but her indian degree isn't recognized in poland towards this challenge the thing is that i'm still learning polish it one report a fact with medical terms it's much more difficult to make people understand so
6:44 am
when i'm calling the numbers for four dentistry. i'm expecting them no english but unfortunately they don't know english and they're not having their current conway to me what are the procedures to be a dentist here. polish isn't good enough yet to open her own clinic but she wants to stay in poland even though that's a disappointment for her parents who've already chosen a husband for her back home. in india if you need to go out at sea seven o'clock past the sunlight if. i can i'll travel anywhere here i can go out i can take my time i want to visit some more go to some fun places no problem about i can decide where i want to live my life that's what i love about here the young indians say warsaw is the most international city in poland there are fewer foreigners elsewhere. studied in the
6:45 am
east of the country people there hate you because they see it if you're black skin and. they really are from there we're from the pakistan years and they had the pakistan and they want played. me test. i would like to stay in poland but he's not allowed to his visa application was rejected and he has three months to leave. i'm going on over there and i will. become grow up my. to become a good businessman maybe in canada he says me too has another year and a half of study a degree from a polish university could open up the entire e.u. to him i'm thinking the want to have here especially in europe. for if i will stay here i will think about my future here if i will settle down and i would appear. in
6:46 am
a few weeks he'll know if his visa has been extended if it is he wants to look for an office job and not deliver any food. now let's face it in most societies being different doesn't always make life easier people living with a disability know this all too well and disability come in all shapes and sizes some are more obvious than others and that is why they often struggle these people to land a job luckily there are projects like the inclusion factory near shanghai which offers jobs and training helping people with disabilities find their place in society. it sure worked them to work i used to work in a textile factory. then something happened i made a mistake and i stopped working there. they don't care about you they just fired you. now as usual
6:47 am
way his found a job an inclusion factory a company that employs people with developmental disabilities. damas them before when we started there was no way yet to get a work permit for people with developmental disabilities but we eventually managed to win the government's trust that was the first hurdle we had to overcome them on his body as the scripts to write a book in. the inclusion factory is located in tight sun nation high home to a cluster of german companies who founded the factory with the help of the d e g the german investment corporation employees what normal eight hour shifts and the local minimum wage cover it up this is shot child i'll take it apart and then it will be reassembled. nothing we want to be comfortable with the market so we designed and built our own pictures and she very much there is the red light which
6:48 am
they said that was anchored to a big part of this one so they can add to the head needs that. we work face for and . prevent. china's laws on inclusion meet international standards companies are required to employ people with disabilities but the law is poorly in full and even companies who fulfill their quota don't always make the most of these employees they keep them busy with useless tasks or pay a small wage and just sit. when jewish elway learned about the inclusion factory she decided to give it a try one hundred one i got notice that i could start working here i was so happy i want to work and not be a worry to my parents. eighty
6:49 am
or ninety percent of us work as a massage therapist. lost his eyesight when he was eleven he's been working as a traditional chinese massage therapist in beijing for the past year. i was worried that if i worked in other jobs i might not be able to integrate visually impaired people receive recognition in this line of work. who works in a massage parlor that employs mostly people with visual impairments his boss just hung in himself. and opened the studio twenty years ago he was one of the first visually impaired people trained as must serve in china after the government started a program to create job opportunities for them. to
6:50 am
. be able to see what that sense is ten or even a hundred times better than other people's babbit millions of visually impaired people have now trained as massage therapists the special skills have even become something of a selling point. but the scheme has its critics. and fang is responsible for marketing at the inclusion factory he too initially trained as a massage therapist but he felt the job didn't suit him. when i wasn't given a choice i was chosen by the job not the other way around after school i said i want to pursue my own career. eventually my parents accepted my choices
6:51 am
from a high school. now he works on creating more choices for people with disabilities the ultimate goal of the inclusion factory is to see the stuff one day switch into jobs in regular factories. ever since the blockbuster rain man we all assume we know about autism that special condition that turns people into walking calculators that's perhaps one aspect people with autism disorder have many skills but often overlooked because of their difficulties with social interaction and communication and getting a job can be difficult luckily some companies are wising up to this waste of talent . for most people they're just drops of water on a windshield. but. they form a grid that distracts him from the traffic.
6:52 am
on a good day it doesn't bother me but on a bad day i don't drive because i just can't concentrate. for example if it rained on a bad day i would end up focusing on every single drop of rain. they can top from four hundred. you're going to show has asperger's syndrome an autism spectrum disorder people with asperger's don't see hear or feel the world the way others do they can have a hard time fitting in. sure who works for. a company based in munich that harnesses the special talents that some people with autism have he programs websites for corporate clients and develops apps. in a couple of hours he can do more than others can in a whole day. this allows him to go for long walks and think about software
6:53 am
architecture. programming has always been a hobby of mine i got my first computer at a young age and noticed that it didn't do exactly what i wanted. so i figured out how to make it do what i wanted it to do. i studied computer science but dropped out when i realized it wasn't doing me any good since i was smarter than my own professors. people with autism who also have impressive cognitive skills they are for example able to concentrate on long sequences of numbers they notice the tiniest of mistakes in source code. the autism is more pronounced in other and. chloe's. many never held down a job until they came to. they see the world something like
6:54 am
this. some can't handle untidiness and have to lay out neatly their clothes for the next day. many think very logically and want to turn chaos into order. or they can analyze complex systems into their component parts in a flash. you can show found that employers don't know how to deal with autism he changed jobs twenty times before he came to o.c. kong where finally he feels appreciated. over the course of my career i've learnt that people can't deal with my way of working. ron delezio he said a computer for an hour and finish everything twice as fast as they can. for. most people with autism have a hard time on the labor market because they're perfectionists. they always put their finger on the wound and state clearly what isn't right many people don't want
