German Ambassador to Georgia Hubert Knirsch issued a statement regarding the working conditions of Georgian citizens, who left for Germany for seasonal work at a strawberry farm.
According to the ambassador, he talked to the German authorities and received the promise that all the terms of the contract would be met.
“The agencies ensured that all the terms of the contract will be met, including the provision of adequate housing and a minimum wage of 9.5 euros. Problems may be everywhere. The main thing is to solve them soon.
It is good that information about this case was spread in the media. I hope that the successful implementation of the program will be covered with the same attention,” said the German Ambassador.
According to the Georgian media, 24 citizens who left Georgia for Germany for seasonal work are in difficult working conditions and do not receive the promised remuneration.
