More and more firms decide to move their production to Eastern Europe, and especially Romanie. Is it a good thing to move with them?

Emigrate to Romania because of work : a good idea or not ?

With 22 million inhabitants and a guaranteed minimum wage which does not exceed 170 euros, Romania is attractive for Western companies, appearing as a way to save on their production. The most striking example was when Renault bought Dacia factories, to produce, among other things, the Logan or the Duster with the immediate success that we know.

No doubt, the Romanian workers and their low incomes attract and allow French companies to reap huge profits. But what about those employees who are offered to follow market trends locally? When it comes to the reclassification of workers with basic salaries, the answer is pretty obvious. The salaries offered are usually aligned with the host country. It is not really interesting to move out with an entire family for just 1,000 euros per month. Especially that sum would hardly suffice to ensure a standard of living equal to that which it had in France.

Be careful !

The question is more difficult when it comes to executives who are sometimes offered up to double their salaries French, due to the mobility premium, to move in Romania.
These wages are even tastier than the standard of living appears to everyone as much lower in Romania. But be careful! According to a survey conducted in December 2010, the price of bread, but also milk and potatoes, was the same in Romania and France … for 8 times lower wages!

The Eurostat study, “Price Indices of consumer prices,” completed in 2008, indicates that prices of commodities have moved four times faster in Romania than in France between March 2007 and March 2008….

Better think twice before moving !

Well, I was born here and we only have one country in Europe that is worse than use, with a minimum salary of 140 euros per month. You are absolutely right.
