Even with good English skills, Muslim migrants say they canít land jobs in Australia

A new study from Deakin University is shedding some light on why highly qualified migrants like Mr Karimi are having trouble breaking into the job market.

The study found the education levels of Muslim migrants improve when they have higher English skills.

However, their employment prospects do not.

Doctor Cahit Guven, the economics lecturer who led the research project, said this is not the case for non-Muslim migrants.

"If you compare, you know, a non-Muslim immigrant with better English skills to another non-Muslim immigrant with lower English skills, we find that they actually have much better labour market outcomes, which means they are much more likely to [find] work and they have better wages.

"Once we look at the Muslim immigrants, we find that this is not the case.

"If you compare a Muslim immigrant with better English skills to another Muslim immigrant with, you know, lower English skills, that, you know, there is no difference in terms of their employment."

Awwww, ain’t that too bad. Maybe it’d because the Aussies don’t want you and your pals to start demanding prayer rooms, putting your asses up in the air five times a day and generally being a pain in the butt, eh mate?

Maybe they are recognized, universally, as being dicks and difficult in the workplace?

Could it be that 1200 years of inbreeding have left Muslims mentally retarded? That they can't be trusted with modern technology?

Oops, sorry, that little fact isn't PC, and the Aussies still have some small freedoms...

Not all of them are right wing jihadis. My wife worked with an engineer that was very good at his job and didn’t push islam on anyone. He did what he was paid to do and got along with everyone.

> Not all of them are right wing jihadis.

If you study what Islam is about, you will learn that yes, every last one of them is either a jihadi or a heretic, and that there is no option to be anything else.

The only difference between them is if their jihadiness is of the imminent blow things up now type, or if it’s of the slower incremental type; but the objective of killing or converting all non-Muslims is THE unalterable objective of the religion.

I was on a bus with my wife a couple of days ago to buy a new coffee machine. We ere a stop or two before our destination, in a heavily Muslim populated area of Berlin. I saw from the bus a new Barber Shop with balloons outside and it looked large and empty so I told my wife let's get off I am getting a haircut. This was a large Muslim population area called Neukölln, which means there are still plenty of Germans there. So we are approaching the Barber Shop and there are lots of red, white and blue balloons outside. Because we are in Berlin and Muslim area Neukölln, I told my wife: Look red, white and blue American balloons. We laughed. We step inside and see two Muslim barbers, one busy cutting another Muslim looking man's beard, standing in a Barbershop that is decorated in total Americana style including Hollywood movie posters and pictures from the old days, hanging cattle skull, Jack Daniels Whisky bottles filled with hair ointments, old style barber-chairs, etc. It really was red, white and blue America balloons, in Neukölln! My last haircut before that was by a German homosexual who opened a new shop in our neighborhood and fingered my ears in a sexual way which only stopped when I coughed. I told the Muslim I am only coming back to his shop now. Was only 10 euros and I tipped 5. German homosexual was 35 euros and I left fast with no tip.

Those with better English speaking skills do better in the job market, what a revelation!

“find that they actually have much better labour market outcomes, which means they are much more likely to [find] work and they have better wages.

“Once we look at the Muslim immigrants, we find that this is not the case.”

Which just goes to show ya, language skills aren’t enough. How people behave on the job including getting along with others and not being disruptive are valued by employers.

Used to own a small business many yrs ago and we’ll before 9/11.

That said, if I had a business today there is precisely no chance I would ever hire a Muslim. I do not trust them and I do not like them as a people.

Is that unfair and prejudicial? Sure it is but I don’t care. My business, my decision.

There are some who want to be like the rest of the world and some who don’t. Unfortunately for them they’ve made their image to the world over the centuries.
