Romanians and Bulgarians prefer to go to countries where there are no jobs?


Based on an analysis of surveys, statistics and academic papers in Britain, Bulgaria and Romania, the report lists Spain and Italy as the preferred destinations for migrants from the two Balkan countries…

The report stresses that the main motivation for people from Romania and Bulgaria to move abroad is to work, not to claim welfare benefits.

So they would prefer to go to Spain, where unemployment is running at 26%; or Italy, where it’s running at 11%, rather than the UK, where it’s 7.8% (lower than the general EU level of 10% and the Eurozone level of 12%)?
