Not surprised one single bit……
Only four out of 2429 refugees in Dutch city of Rotterdam have full-time jobs. 95% is on welfare
On 24 November, Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad (AD) published an article on the influx of asylum-seekers into the city of Rotterdam. In the past two years, the city has housed 2.429 asylum-seekers, 80 more than it was obligated to do by law. Next year, it will be allowed to house 80 people less. Of those 2.429, 95% lives on social benefits, representing almost 5% of the total amount of people on benefits in Rotterdam.
The numbers are from a study by the municipality, into the migrant population that has been allowed to live in Rotterdam over last two years: the so-called Monitor Rotterdamse Aanpak Statushouders 2016-2020. It is the first time that a study of how a city is coping with the influx of migrants that, in the words of AD, surprised Europe in 2015, is conducted.
