Sebastian Kurz, the Austrian foreign minister, is considering to take measures such as low paid mandatory community jobs for migrants as the majority lacks high job qualifications.
Kurz announced that if refugees refuse to take this kind of work, the government will reduce the amount of financial support they receive, reported Der Standard.
The minister of foreign affairs said that even if some are highly-skilled, the majority is not.
“Just among those from Afghanistan, there are many that are illiterate,” Kurz stated.
Kurtz also suggested that new arrivals could receive full financial and social support only after five years of staying in the country.
Meanwhile, Kurz, a member of the Austrian People’s Party, announced that it is time for the Social Democrat coalition (SPO) to begin backing up his proposal.
The SPO politicians have accepted the plan in general terms. They have argued that the “one euro jobs” plan is inappropriate as it will throw off the Austrian employment market.
