So a couple of things I'll bring to the discussion. First, the article doesn't say they don't seek full-time employment, but rather they have not yet obtained full-time employment. Second, uprooting your family and travelling sometimes halfway around the world to a country where you may or may not speak the local language has a significant impact on refugees' ability to find work in the short term. If you look at some studies though, you'll see this is sort of expected, and that historically over a longer period (4+ years) these rates increase. Here's one example (figure 1):
Other studies have indicated this is a long term problem, for sure. There are plenty of great studies that can be reviewed at depth (such as this one):
I think, and this is my opinion not necessarily based in fact, that MOST refugees are not lazy, are not looking to survive indefinitely off of your tax dollars, etc. Similar to people receiving social assistance, MOST of them are not out to game the system. These social nets exist to help support those members of our society that are experiencing problems, but like most systems are unfortunately not 100% efficient, and probably never will be.
So what's the answer? I don't know. But I do know it pays to do a little research before deciding where you might stand on an issue based on a 3 paragraph news article. News services have inherent biases at play, whether at the behest of a nation state (think RT, Sputnik), a political agenda (think Fox news, or the 'Liberal' Media), or through profit driving motives. It pays to educate yourself from a variety of sources, analyse what each is saying and synthesize a point of view based on the body of evidence, the facts as presented and the balance of probabilities.
