Consecințele migrației externe asupra pieței muncii din România
[The consequences of external migration on romanian labor market]
AbstractMigration is an important component of contemporary society. Leaving the homeland for a better life and a well paid job is currently the most dynamic form of working population movement. For the host countries migration provides experienced cheap workforce capable of high performance. But the current economic crisis drastically reduced immigrant inflows thanks to high unemployment rates and less available work permits for migrant destination countries. Despite expectations, the return migration stayed at low levels because usually the origin country economic downturn was even worse; and the fall in remittances was also smaller than the statistics said. For Romania, emigrants represent a considerable loss because they are still reflecting the reduced capacity of the Romanian economy to generate jobs and appropriate remuneration. During the crisis, the migration outflows still continuated to grow although the remittances significally reduced, showing that they no longer go so well. Beneficiary are also the mother countries which through the money send by the citizens that work in another country they cover most of the times, a significant part of GDP. All the aspects mentioned above including the level of remittances and the effects of the migration will be analyzed in this paper.
