Germany Extends Job Market Exclusions For New EU States
Germany | 22.03.2006

The German cabinet Wednesday decided that the German job market would remain closed to employees from eastern European countries until at least 2009, citing the high unemployment in the continent's largest economy.

Employment Minister Franz Müntefering said that the cabinet had agreed to a three-year extension to an original plan made just two years which would exclude citizens from eight of the 10 newest members of the EU, including countries like Poland, Hungary and Slovakia. Only Malta and Cyprus are excluded.

"In view of the situation on the German labor market, the arrival of employees from the new EU countries must continue to be controlled," a labor ministry statement said.
