Why is Delhi hated by foreigners

Out without foreigners!

You have to let the numbers work on you: In meat processing, the proportion of foreign employees with compulsory social security is now 39.6 percent, in food production 37.1 percent. Work in these industries would collapse if one had to rely on the Germans alone. And this is only the "tip of the iceberg": The proportion of foreigners in concrete construction and cleaning, as well as in gastronomy, food preparation and cooks, is between 30 and 35 percent; between 25 and 30 percent are involved in the production of luxury foods, hotels and agriculture, as well as in building construction.

Without much exaggeration, one can say that those areas of the economy where strength and physical exertion are required and the working conditions are difficult by nature, the Germans have long been a slim majority. And even that will be lost in the years to come: All the forecasts for the workforce point to a drastic aging, which affects first and foremost those unpopular jobs where the proportion of foreigners is already high today. Between 2020 and 2035, the baby boomer generation - born between 1955 and 1970 - will retire, the largest generation in German history. And with her not only highly qualified engineers, but also many Germans who do manual work.

There is hardly a more impressive justification for the need for immigration. In order to maintain its standard of living, Germany not only needs highly qualified specialists from abroad, but also highly motivated workers and employees who cover the need for services in the manual sector. If they don't come, the quality of life will suffer massively, because many human services cannot be replaced by digitally operated computers and robots, at least not in the next two decades, even if some tech optimists want to make us believe this. The situation is reminiscent of the 1960s. At that time, “guest workers” poured into the country en masse from southern Europe and especially from Turkey, and most of them stayed. The Germans turned to lucrative and enjoyable careers, just as they do today. A low proportion of foreigners of less than five percent can be found in state, social, insurance, real estate and financial administration, in physiotherapy and occupational therapy as well as in childcare, education and social work.

All of this is perfectly normal in a dynamic economy. The key question, however, is how society deals with immigration. Does it treat the controlled influx - like Germany in the 1960s - as some kind of necessary evil, an annoying but inevitable fringe that needs no further attention? Or does it recognize that the influx is a major integration task that needs to be at the center of politics? It is a choice between the spirit of a closed society and the philosophy of an open immigration country that regulates migration intelligently, controls it sensibly and organizes it socially. For this to happen, the legal basis must finally be created. More than anything, Germany needs an immigration law.
