BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s labor minister is threatening to cut benefits for migrants who don’t want to integrate into German society.

Germany registered nearly 1.1 million people as asylum-seekers last year. Integrating those who are allowed to stay into society and the labor market will pose a major challenge in the years ahead.

Labor Minister Andrea Nahles wrote in today’s edition of the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that “all people who live in Germany, no matter what their ethnic origin, must make an effort, seek work and support themselves and their families as well as they can.”
