commuters, guest-workers, mobility, quote, Uncategorized

Paradoxically, the refugee crisis didn’t exacerbate the EU-skepticism in those countries which received the most refugees, but in those areas which are struggling with massive emigration. A prime example of this are the Eastern European states, from which many young, talented people migrated to the Western Europe. Migration means therefore a loss of competitiveness and a waste of resources for them.
