As of October 2009, job security in Lower Saxony has drastically decreased. Increasingly, workers are forced to search for precarious positions in limited work, part-time jobs, menial jobs, or replacement jobs. Particular patterns have developed with the largest percentage of those in precarious employment represented by non-European Union immigrants.

Additionally, non-EU immigrants earn approximately one third less in hourly wages than other workers.
