Forty-seven per cent of Slovaks would like to work abroad when Slovakia joins the European Union, according to research by the National Labour Office.
"How can I get work in the European Union? That is one of the most frequent questions I'm asked," said Azelio Fulmini, director of the European Parliament office in Slovakia.
The main reason stated for the desire to work abroad is money: Slovak wages are currently 35 per cent of the EU average, despite being above 75 per cent of EU levels in Bratislava.
