...regular labor force began to arrive

from Southern Europe.

The procedure almost

looked like an animal market.

Only for healthy ones were possible

to go to Germany.

You know, there is a labor scarcity

in the labor market

Spanish and Italian workers didn't have enough

at the time.

We decided to benefit from Turkish workers

A guest worker is subject to the headlines

on 10 September 1964.
