Gibt es eine Alternative? - Zur Beschäftigung polnischer Saisonarbeitnehmer in Deutschland


  • Barbara Dietz

    () (Osteuropa-Institut, Regensburg (Institut for East European Studies))


Seit Beginn der neunziger Jahre kommt der Beschäftigung von osteuropäischen Saisonarbeitern insbesondere in der deutschen Landwirtschaft eine Schlüsselrolle zu. Obschon diese auf bilateralen Verträgen beruhende kurzfristige Arbeitsmigration mittlerweile Praxis ist, wurde ihre Bedeutung für Arbeitgeber und Betriebe, aber auch für die lokalen Arbeitsmärkte in Deutschland erst in Ansätzen untersucht. Vor diesem Hintergrund führte das Osteuropa-Institut München im Frühjahr 2003 eine qualitative Befragung in landwirtschaftlichen Betrieben durch, die Saisonarbeitnehmer aus Polen beschäftigen. Ziel dieser Untersuchung war, umfassende Informationen zur Rekrutierung, Beschäftigung und Erfolgsbilanz von saisonalen Arbeitsmigranten aus Osteuropa zu erheben.
