Bulgaria - Tourism sector looks for cheap labour from abroad - August 31, 2016

A newly established tourism council has proposed to start hiring seasonal workers from abroad in order to improve the quality of service offered in the country’s summer and winter resorts. The council identified the lack of well-trained staff as the most considerable problem of the sector. According to the tourism minister and council experts, the period of traineeships offered in the tourism sector should be extended from 3 to 6 months. The minister said that Bulgarians prefer to work abroad due to the better conditions and remuneration. In the Black Sea resorts, a typical low-qualified worker on eight-hour working day earns a minimum monthly salary of BGN 500.
