Poland is planning on opening its borders to 100 000 Filipino workers, claiming a ‘labour shortage’ due to its ageing population.
In a very civic nationalist approach, Poland’s Deputy Labor Minister Stanislaw Szwed has said that “[The Philippines] have good solutions because they are co-ordinated by a government employment agency. Poland was chosen because our country is close to them culturally, due to the Catholic faith among other things.”
Mr. Szwed has also noted they were on the course of forming a coordinated agreement with the Philippine government in order to cover “their growing labour shortage because of Poland’s ageing population and its native’s migration to other European countries”.
Once again, even conservative governments prefer a short term solution in order to cover for our demographic crisis, preferring massive legal migration instead of real measures to grow native European birth rates.
