Lithuania -Tour guides protest against unfair treatment -October 17, 2013

The trade union of tour guides – ‘Solidarity’ – held a protest action outside the Royal Palace in the heart of Vilnius. The tour guides say they are discriminated because Lithuanian citizens who want to work as tour guides are required to have a university degree, complete a special course and pass an examination of the Lithuanian history and conducting tours, whilst none of this is mandatory for other EU citizens.
