Ministry looking for measures to expedite the employment of asylum seekers

The Ministry of Employment and the Economy is mulling over measures to facilitate the entry of asylum seekers into the labour market. “We could shorten the qualifying periods while looking for new means to offer them jobs for which finding workers is difficult,” suggests Olli Sorainen, a ministerial adviser at the Ministry of Employment and the Economy.

“This could include light tree clearing or berry picking, snow removal or some property maintenance work.”

An agreement on the matter is not expected before next week when the ministerial working group on migration will hold its next meeting. The meeting was initially scheduled for tomorrow but was postponed because the chairperson of the working group, Minister of the Interior Petteri Orpo (NCP), will be in Luxembourg on Friday to sit down with his European counterparts.
