Germany: SPD wants to give preference to migrants for jobs in the state administration


KIEL. The SPD in the Kiel state parliament has called for migrants to be given preference in the allocation of jobs in the state administration of Schleswig-Holstein. In the case of equal suitability, a "priority selection" of people with foreign roots is necessary in order to increase their share in public administration, the parliamentary group informed the dpa news agency on Wednesday.

The aim is that the proportion of people with an immigrant background in the total population is reflected in the administration. The parliamentary group was therefore unable to say exactly how the Social Democrats define a migration background. In her amendment to the draft of the Integration and Participation Act, however, she referred to a similar regulation in Hamburg. The red-green Senate in the Hanseatic city announced in November that the proportion of young people with foreign roots employed was “close to the target of 20 percent”.

SPD against commitment to the free-democratic basic order
For SPD politicians Serpil Midyatli and Thomas Rother, the drafting of the law is at a standstill. In addition, they emphasized that in their draft that has now been submitted, the commitment to the free-democratic basic order demanded by the black-green-yellow government groups had been deliberately deleted. "What does Jamaica [that is the informal name given to the black-green-yellow coalition] mean by writing this matter of course in a state law for this target group?"

Such a confession can only be understood as a general declaration of mistrust. “After all, this law would be the only one in Schleswig-Holstein to include such an obligation. And that is exactly what the conservative circles in the coalition mean."

At the beginning of the year there was also a debate in Berlin about a migrant quota in the public service. Integration Senator Elke Breitenbach (Left Party) called for a mandatory share of 35 percent for people with an immigrant background. While the Greens praised the proposal, the SPD protested against it, so that the demand is off the table for the time being.
