Migrant Truck Drivers: A Truly Great Idea By Richard Miller
Germany sure knows how to solve a problem: train migrants as truck drivers! Perhaps then, train migrants as train drivers, and then drive migrants by train. Train migrants to train train drivers who train truck drivers! I give up; I can’t use the word “train” in any more senses, no matter how much I train, without tripping over my pen/key board.
“A pilot project in Germany is working to make it easier for asylum seekers to become truck drivers – an initiative that comes amid widespread unemployment for migrants who arrived during the migrant crisis. The German Red Cross and the Logistics Organisation want to alleviate the shortage of drivers in the state of Schleswig-Holstein with targetted recruiting of asylum seekers, in moves that have been praised as “imaginative and praiseworthy” by regional Economics Minister Bernd Buchholz, reports Kieler Nachrichten. A similar nation-wide programme of hiring asylum seekers and refugees as truck drivers was pushed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel after she opened Europe’s borders to over one million Middle Eastern and African migrants in 2015, the vast majority of whom are unskilled.”
Taking jobs from locals has never been a concern of the globalists. And, migrants have show considerable skill with truck driving so it is only natural that this profession should fall into their laps.
