I guess that Vietnam is in fact that awful.
So, remember back in February, when the Czechs offered a free plane ticket and $649 to any foreign worker who agreed to return home after losing their jobs in the economic downturn? Well according to the New York Times, it turns out about 2,000 Mongolians, Ukrainians and Kazakhs took up the offer. But it also turns out that there were more than 2,000 migrants in the Czech Republic. And in fact, the largest remaining migrant population is the Vietnamese community. Oh, and a good number of them aren't actually migrants, but second-generation residents who were born among the workers who came over in the 70s.
So solutions? ... None have been offered as of yet...
