In Estonia, 44% of Ukrainian refugees aged 20-64 were able to get a job, having good feedback from the labor market.
This was reported by ERR with reference to the Ministry of Social Affairs of Estonia, Ukrinform reports.
It is noted that the share of Ukrainian refugees who got a job in Estonia is much higher than the average recorded across the European Union (30%).
Also, most Ukrainians have been employed for more than 200 days already.

At the same time, the ministry notes that the high level of education of displaced Ukrainians does not guarantee them a job, no matter how much their qualifications are in line with job requirements. The problem lies in insufficient language knowledge and lack of opportunities to supervise children while parents are away from home.
As reported, over 40,000 Ukrainian displaced persons remain under temporary protection in Estonia. Of them, 58% are of working age – from 20 to 64 years.
