SARAJEVO – Neither the events in the world nor the shaky economy of Europe prevented domestic workers from fleeing BiH, which is confirmed by the fact that more than 5,000 people left the country in three months, who got jobs in only two foreign countries.

According to the data of the BiH Agency for Labor and Employment, which mediates in finding jobs for domestic workers in Slovenia and Germany, it is evident that the crisis in the world did not stop the departure of domestic labor to those countries but, on the contrary, gained strength.

“By the end of March this year, 4,886 workers went to Slovenia, which is 1,805 more than in the same period last year.”said the BiH Labor and Employment Agency.

When it comes to Germany, the Agency has data as of the end of April, and according to those numbers, 162 medics went to work in that country, which is 19 more compared to the same period a year earlier.

This means that in the first quarter of this year, 5,048 workers left the country and went to work in two countries, which is 1,682 people on average per month. These data are even more devastating, because a large number of workers found jobs for themselves and went abroad.

Economists point out that even a certain increase in wages does not slow down the departure of domestic labor.

“It simply came to our notice then. And so it will be until the salary reaches 70 percent of the purchasing power in the country where people go. It is Serbian now, that is, the salary in our country is at some 45 percent of the purchasing power of the salary in Germany. That means that we are just on that border so that people leave here en masse. “said economist Marko Đogo.

He also explains that the labor fund in Srpska has not been completely exhausted.

“It is a very unfortunate situation for the economy, if the long-term rate of aggregate supply decreases. That is, we will never achieve what we could two years ago if these trends do not stop. “ stated Jogo.

When it comes to forecasts, he points out that everything is going in the direction that around 2025, the domestic labor market will completely dry up, and that there will be no one left to leave.

“Since 2013, a mass exodus of labor has begun in our country. And it gained strength every year. Between 20,000 and 25,000 people go to Germany every year alone. “, stated Jogo. Glas Srpske
