Polish nationals account for most of foreign staffing agency workers
In the 12 months to July 2014, almost 90,000 so-called flexi-migrants worked in the Netherlands, of whom 88% were Polish nationals, ABU said.
There are also substantial numbers of Germans, Czechs, Slovaks and Lithuanians working in the Netherlands through staffing agencies.
Foreign nationals account for 13% of the jobs done through staffing agencies, ABU said. Most work in logistics, farming and the food industry. ABU expects their number to go up by 4.3% next year.
Four in 10 migrant workers are under the age of 30. In the main they have had little post school education, ABU said.
& lsquo;We see this as evidence of the importance of migrant labour to the Dutch economy,’ ABU director Jurriën Koops said.
