INTERNATIONAL Czech Republic: Fear of foreign manpower remains strong
Fri, 4 May 2012
Over three-quarters (78%) of Czechs believe that cheap foreign manpower can deprive nationals of jobs and should be further regulated, reports Czech News Agency ČTK.
This is according to a poll of 1,000 Czechs conducted by public researchers CVVM, which finds that this attitude has remained steady over the past 10 years.
Two-thirds of those questioned believe that foreigners should only be offered jobs in the sectors in which nationals show little or no interest in working.
Also, 20% believe foreigners’ employment should be limited in the areas hit by high unemployment.
