Dutch hire fewer Romanians and Bulgarians

30th March 2012, Comments 0 comments

There has been a drop in the number of work permits Dutch market gardners request for Romanian and Bulgarian workers.

In the first three months of this year the UWV employment agency received just 57 work permit applications, compared with 768 in the same period last year and 569 in 2010. Social Minister Henk Kamp last year urged market gardners to employ more temporary workers who do not need a work permit, such as jobless people or Polish workers.
