Croatia -Support for migrant workers -July 15, 2013

Although the entrance for migrant labour is still restricted the German trade union confederation DGB has announced to take the interests for Croatian workers serious. The last two EU enlargement rounds in 2004 and 2007 already showed that employees from eastern European countries entered the labour market despite restrictions. Many of them became victims of shady job agents or irresponsible employers. Butchers and building workers, for example, had to take service contracts or work as sham independent contractors for starvation wages. Therefore, the project ‘Fair mobility’ that supports employees from the new EU member states in asserting their rights has been extended to help employees from Western Balkan countries.
