The German government has approved the bill sharply limiting subsidization of migrants from European countries.

According to this project, developed by the Ministry of Labour and approved by the Council of Ministers, the indigenous inhabitants of Europe, moved to Germany and not working there don’t have a right for social assistance until completion by five years of legal residence. But the rules for migrants from other countries (for example, from the Middle East or Africa) have not been tightened.

The Federal Employment Agency of Germany informs that this year only in January about 440 thousand people from other European Union countries received social assistance. Most of them are poles. In addition to citizens of Poland, Germany sponsored italians, bulgarians, romanians and greeks.
