Before Romania became a member of the EU and certainly after that, Romanian industrial workers were seeking jobs in other EU countries where they are regarded as cheap labor. According to New York Times, Romanian textile industries now have a shortage or workers. They are solving it by importing workers from China, even cheaper labor than Romanians.
I was never too enthusiastic about the idea of a Romanian membership. This news seems to confirm what I suspected. Romania is a trojan horse to import sweatshops to EU.
