Massive Unemployment Among Turkish Immigrants in Austria

Often they come in accompanied, sometimes with half the family in tow. The women sit there mutely, the veil pulled over their faces, while the man at their side speaks. If the counsellor manages to get a few words out of them, often it reveals broken German.

Turkish girls and women are among the most difficult clients for employment counsellors. Three quarters have only completed the period of mandatory schooling - and even that not always completely. "One day they go to school, then not again", says Inge Friehs, "because it's clear in advance they're supposed to marry and become housewives."

Friehs describes only one facet of the disquieting overall picture: among the clients of the employment service people of immigrant origin are heavily overrepresented. At 31.4% their share of those who are unemployed in Austria is almost twice as high as their share of those who are employed. In Vienna immigrants represent "only" 32 percent of those in employment, but almost half of job-seekers. Of the unemployed young people in the city, those of foreign origin represent as many as 70 per cent.
