The then exclusivist FRG 1965 Foreigners Act stipulated that rights of entrance and residence of foreign workers depended on “the interests of the German state”. These German policies, with their own original, restrictive hiring patterns, along with the 1965 Bonn reminder of the fragility of their work situation in Germany, directly affected the workers from non-European Economic Community (EEC) countries. This was especially true during the 1966–7 temporary downturn in the German economy, when labor migration from abroad was largely halted. Anticipating problems of re-entry, it was mainly the non-EEC workers, and among them mainly the Turks, who early on chose to extend their contracts by all available bureaucratic/legal means instead of rotating in and out of the Federal Republic.
