Germany to Ease Immigration of High-Skilled Workers, FTD Says

March 28 (Bloomberg) -- Germany’s coalition parties agreed to lower the legal wage threshold for high-skilled immigrant workers in a bid to fill specialized job gaps in the labor market, Financial Times Deutschland reported, citing lawmakers it didn’t identify.

The threshold will be reduced from an annual income of 66,000 euros ($87,952) to 44,800 euros in general and 34,200 euros for jobs with high vacancies such as engineers, computer scientists or physicians, the newspaper said.
