According to a report, more than 14,000 Slovenians regularly work in Austria, with around half commuting daily across the border, an increase with 2,500 during the past 12 months. The main motives for people crossing the border to seek work are a lack of jobs at home and higher earnings. The workers involved are said to be generally satisfied with the working conditions and attitude of their employers, who as a rule respect labour laws: ‘In a case of disagreement, the Austrian Chamber of Labour is responsible for disputes, but inquiries over disputes with the employers are few’.
