Labour Minister presents Slovaks as 'homebodies'

Labour Minister Peter Magvaši told an Austrian conference on EU enlargement August 27 that the Union should not fear an influx of cheap Slovak labour after opening the borders or member countries.

"We know the reality of the typical Slovak citizen. Most Slovaks cling to their houses, families, gardens and cottages. Slovaks are homebodies by nature," stated Magvaši.
