This week, a surprising airline news claims that Airbus has expressed its interest in hiring newly arrived refugees in Germany. According to Airbus CEO, Tom Enders the refugees could work in the airline's facilities for a different wage rate.

According to Enders, the refugees will be paid lesser than the non-refugees doing the same job.  The idea is also aimed at dissolving the unions and hire the new potential employees. Unlike the European employees, who are protected by the union, they would be working separately, according to Blog Wandr.

"If the entry threshold into the labor market is too high, the integration of immigrants into society will fail. What was intended as a protection mechanism becomes an instrument of exclusion. Now pragmatism is called for," Enders said.

Meanwhile, the influx of the refugees from Syria started in September. Thousands of refugees arrived through trains.  On the first day, a total of 6,000 people arrived.  Since August, an average of over 2,000 a day people were entering Hungary and installing their camps outside Budapest main stations, according to The Guardian. They were then transported to Munich, Germany, the so-called "promise land."

German police claimed that during the time, they expected a total of 10,000 to arrive in a day. British Prime Minister David Cameron promised to increase its budget to £1billion and to move out the refugees from the camps, Daily Mail reports.

"You've got to deal with the problem at source, which is this evil Assad regime and the ISIL (Islamic State) terrorists, and you need a comprehensive plan for a more stable, peaceful Syria. A huge challenge of course, but you can't just let that crisis fester. We've got to get engaged in that."

Austria and Germany opened its borders to thousands of Syrian refugees after waiving the law on countries' asylum systems.  Do you think the latest airline news of Airbus hiring the refugees is a good idea?
