One focus of varying diversities within open society is the so-called post-migrant approach that focuses on the perspective of migration to and the resulting process of – social, and political transformations, conflicts, and identity constructions. The topic area of integration and labor in a post-migrational society is, in this context, of enormous importance, which essentially can improve in making societal participation possible here and considers the shortage of skilled workers and demographic advancement as well as the advancement of the job market.
