Eastern European immigrants won’t all steal British jobs

When Big Ben chimes midnight on New Year’s Eve an invisible wall in eastern Europe will crumble. January 1 marks the end of UK labour movement restrictions with Romania and Bulgaria, two of the European Union’s poorest countries.

Pressure group Migration Watch predicts as many as 70,000 immigrants a year could flood the UK. This has led to frenzied fears that they will take British jobs and drain the welfare system, while gypsies erect permanent encampments on Park Lane and Mayfair.

Rubbish, says Emi Gal.

Gal, a 23-year-old Romanian expat, is part of a new wave of eastern European immigrants coming to the UK to start businesses in high-growth sectors such as technology and social media. Britain’s pre-eminence in these fields attracts entrepreneurs who lack the markets and infrastructure needed in their eastern European homelands.

“Romanians are good at two things – engineering and entrepreneurship,” says Gal. His native country has produced a Nobel prize-winning biologist, the inventor of the jet aeroplane and even sent an astronaut into space.

Gal moved to London three years ago, after studying computer sciences and mathematics in Romania, to set up his video advertising technology firm, Brainient. His business adds interactive features to online videos, helping clients increase ad revenue by an average of 30 per cent.

Eastern European immigrants won’t all steal British jobs

Dezvoltatori est-europeni în domeniul ITC ar putea deveni un fel de noi "instalatori polonezi", scrie ziarul britanic The Independent, prezentând câteva afaceri de acest tip ce au creat locuri de muncă în Marea Britanie, inclusiv a unui român, şi subliniind că est-europenii nu vor fura locurile de muncă britanicilor.

Potrivit publicaţiei britanice, citată de Mediafax, un expatriat român, Emil Gal, în vârstă de 23 de ani, face parte dintr-un nou val de imigranţi est-europeni ce vin în Marea Britanie pentru a începe afaceri în sectoare cu un puternic potenţial de creştere, ca cel al tehnologiei şi social media. Primatul britanic în aceste domenii atrage întreprinzători care nu beneficiază de piaţa şi infrastructura de care au nevoie în ţările lor, în Europa de Est.
