DThe traffic light coalition wants to recruit more nurses from countries with a large labor force such as Brazil. Federal Minister of Labor Hubertus Heil (SPD) told the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung” (Saturday) that “a recruitment strategy would be implemented together with the economy in countries where there are more young and well-educated people than the local labor market can absorb”. .
He will travel to Brazil in June together with Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (Greens), because there the labor potential in the care sector is very large. In addition, there are agreements with Indonesia and Mexico.
“We will proceed very sensitively so that we do not take away from any country the workers that it needs itself,” said Heil. “We benefit, the countries of origin benefit, for example by getting involved in local training, and the people who come to us benefit: through a well-paid job for themselves and perhaps also through the opportunity to support family members at home financially to support.”
