Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr has spoken out in favor of increased labor migration to Germany. In an interview with the weekly newspaper “Die Zeit,” Spohr emphasized that Germany’s future prosperity would not be assured without immigration. He pointed to the United States as a model, where immigration leads to economic growth.

Spohr also criticized the fact that it is too complicated for migrants to find work in Germany. At the same time, he expressed his concern about the weakening German economy and the lack of discussion about the duties of citizens and employees. Instead, debates about rights and privileges dominate. Spohr warned that Germany is in danger of no longer taking global competition seriously enough.
