Immigrants to The Netherlands discriminated against in (the) Job-Market.

In looking for employment, immigrants to The Netherlands have to cope with difficulties which not only reflect a lower education level, less work experience or a poor command of the Dutch language. According to the 'Sociaal en Cultureel Planbureau” (SCP) - the Dutch Social and Cultural Planning Office, this indicates discrimination against the immigrants.

Sixty percent of immigrants of Moroccan descent who were rejected for a job last year, suspect, are certain that discrimination was involved. Among immigrants of Turkish descent this number was 49%, and immigrants from Suriname and the Antilles 17%.
