Für die Integration der Flüchtlinge in Deutschland ist Arbeit essentiell und im Licht von Fachkräftemangel und steigenden Durchschnittsalter der Bevölkerung ist der Zustrom von jungen Arbeitnehmern eine große Chance.
Laut einer Befragung von 651 Familienunternehmen in Deutschland beschäftigt etwa jedes zehnte Familienunternehmen derzeit Flüchtlinge. Davon sind zwei Prozent in Minijobs und 7,2 Prozent als Zeitarbeiter tätig, die übrigen sind als Praktikanten und Auszubildende beschäftigt. Laut Lutz Goebel, Präsident des Verbandes „Die Familienunternehmer“, sind für viele Familienunternehmen unzureichende Sprachkenntnisse und der häufig ungeklärte Aufenthaltsstatus große Hindernisse für die Beschäftigung von Flüchtlingen. Der Verband „Die Familienunternehmen“ schlägt zur Lösung dieser Probleme ein Paket aus Anreizen sowohl für Flüchtlinge zur frühen Eigenqualifikation als auch für Arbeitgeber zur Einstellung von Flüchtlingen vor: . Die schnelle Umsetzung solcher oder ähnlicher Programme sollte nun im Fokus der Politik stehen.
