Turkish colonists in Germany have a 30% unemployment rate!

Republic of Cyprus, Press and Information Office, Turkish Press Review: Study shows that 193 thousand Turkish migrants return back to Turkey from Germany in the last four years
Turkish daily Hurriyet Daily News (14.03.13) reports that according to a study conducted by the Germany-based Turkish European Foundation for Education and Scientific Studies (TAVAK) ...
According to the study, there are currently 2,950,000 people of Turkish origin living in Germany, of whom only 1,020,000 are in possession of German citizenship. Some 1,930,000 people keep their Turkish passports and hold foreigner status. 
Individuals of Turkish origin make up 31% of the nearly 9 million immigrants in Germany. Around 720,000 of these are tenants while 230,000 own their houses. Average household size is 3.9 and average income is 2,020 euro, meaning that the total income of Turks in the country amounts to 16.5 billion euro.
The unemployment rate among Turks in Germany is 30% according to TAVAK figures, compared with the overall unemployment rate of 5.90%. However these statistics do not tell the whole story, according to Sen.
“Nearly 2 million short term workers are not counted among the unemployed. In addition, nearly 1.5 million people taking vocational courses and the nearly 1.6 million women who have remained jobless for over 15 months do not have unemployed status,” he said, suggesting that the real overall unemployment rate in Germany was 14.5%.
Sen also claimed that excluding Turks from professional life was a regular practice in Germany. “Firms do not want Turks or other outsiders that are suggested for their positions by the Labor-Employment Exchange Institute,” he said, adding his opinion that the reason behind this, is rising “Islamophobia” and “Turkophobia,” especially in Germany. He said that the neo-Nazi attacks against Turks, were concrete results of discrimination.
Some 44% of the Turkish migrant population lives below the national poverty line (372 euro per month) in the country, according to Sen. ...
Turkey and Germany do not have a double citizenship agreement, which forces youngsters to make a choice between the two before the age of 23.
