    accommodate

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "accommodate" in the following context:

    Germany displays several forms of bilateral labour agreements to accommodate several channels for accepting temporary workers. The first is the “guest-employee” agreements aimed at permitting skilled workers to obtain further training in Germany for a limited period of 18 months. The second channel is addressed at cross-border commuters who work in pre-defined border regions and must return to their country of domicile on a daily basis. The seasonal worker scheme is a third channel which accommodates thousands of seasonal workers, mainly in agriculture, for a maximum of 9 months.


    Does "accommodate" in "a third channel which accommodates thousands of seasonal workers, mainly in agriculture, for a maximum of 9 months" mean that seasonal workers get jobs in agriculture through this third channel?

    Re: accommodate

    You're right. "Accommodate" here means nothing else, than "accept", "admit", or "have room for".
