Guess what? It’s always been that way.
Of course the YLE picture uses a “person of color” instead of a “person of paleness” to underline the real reason for the article, it’s really racism to blame. Yes they mention the language barrier and present economic situation, but you get the drift. Truth be told, the difficulty for foreigners entering the job market, (any foreigner that is) has traditionally been difficult, no matter where the person is from, degree or no degree at all.
Any potential candidate for a position in Finland, unless the language of the workplace (like Nokia) is in English, has to be proficient enough in the Finnish language to land the job. The TT knows many immigrants from the US with degrees who over the past 25 years had difficulty finding a job that meets their qualifications, and racism has nothing to do with it. KGS
