Germany puts focus on immigrant employment

Training and apprenticeships are some initiatives aimed at giving immigrants a better foothold in the job market.

    With anti-immigration sentiment apparently rising across Europe, the continent's largest economy is looking at ways to help new arrivals. 

    Chancellor Angela Merkel has just led a meeting looking at how to better integrate immigrants into German society, with a particular focus on getting more of them into training and apprenticeships.
