Employees brought in from Albania’s service-sector firms are fleeing Asia to Europe due to a lack of manpower.
According to Albanian press news, the move to bring in workers from India, Bangladesh and the Philippines did not solve the problem due to a shortage of 15,000 employees in the summer season.
Employers reported that the majority of workers brought in from faraway Asia used Albania as a springboard for moving to Western Europe.
According to the Albanian Daily News, Enri Jahja, a representative of the Bar and Restaurant Association, adds that despite the high salary costs, other Asian employees are doing better than Indians, but they are also using Albania as a springboard to escape to other countries.
For Asian workers, most of whom are from the Philippines, the cost is at least US$400 for 10 hours of work per day, including accommodation and food. Eligible employees may be paid more.
Jahjah demands the implementation of incentive policies for local employees to solve the problem.
