Unpaid truckers return home

Some 90 Slovak truck drivers who had worked in Luxembourg for the failed Austrian firm Kralowetz have returned home with 1,000 euros in compensation from the Luxembourg government, but without the $3,000 each is owed on average in salary by the firm. Kralowetz, which had employed about 700 truckers from eastern Europe without paying taxes or social fund contributions, collapsed at the end of January.
