Schwerin (dpa/mv) - Social Affairs Minister Stefanie Drese (SPD) sees childcare offers as an important factor in the integration of refugee women. "Especially due to the immigration of Ukrainian women with children, there is an increased need for childcare in our country," she said on Thursday after the conference of the labor and social affairs ministers of the federal states. According to the information, the federal states want to work to ensure that there are more support services for language courses.
In addition, the state group is calling for the so-called priority check to be dropped for jobs that do not require a special qualification: This means that proof that no applicant from Germany is available for the position no longer has to be provided. "The shortage of specialists and workers is already one of the main challenges today," says Drese. The deletion is intended to facilitate access to the labor market.
