Ältere Arbeitnehmer, sind die Opfer der Privatisierungen im Balkan

Die gut ausgebildeten Arbeiter, werden oft wie auch bei Experten in der Adminstration, durch Pseudo Experten und Arbeiter ohne Erfahrung ersetzt. Ein schwerer Fehler, denn man in vielen Ländern gemacht hat. Qualifikation ist Alles, heute aber gefälschte Schul Zeugnisse und gefälschte Titel sehr oft. Das die sogenannten Manager immer inkompetender sind, ist ebenso nicht zuübersehen. Gerade in den Mafiösen Zirkeln, die sich durch die Privatisierung bereicherten, konnte man erkennen, das man selbst im Tourismus einfach unfähig und inkompetent ist. Oft stellt man nur noch dümmere Verwandte ein, was auch beim Niedergang in der Mafia Republik Kosovo und Albanien sehr gut zusehen ist.

Older Workers Pay Dearly for Balkan Privatisation

Thousands of older Balkan workers are trapped in poverty as they struggle to find work but cannot retire – a fate they share with their western European counterparts. In Macedonia, dozens of desperate over 50s have been driven to commit suicide.

„Twenty five members… have committed suicide because they could not cope with the poverty. All of them were over fifty. Some hanged themselves, some jumped from bridges or buildings, and one set himself on fire,” says Ljiljana Georgievska, speaking of workers who have become known in Macedonia as the ‘bankruptcy victims’.

Georgievska is vice-president of UNIT, a national association for the ‘bankruptcy victims’; workers who lost their jobs because their companies went bankrupt following Macedonia’s mismanaged privatisation process.

Most are trapped in extreme poverty as they are unable to get work. Many cannot even retire as they are not eligible for a state pension or because the bosses pocketed their pension contributions instead of passing them on to the government.

Workers young and old here have been hit hard by the bankruptcies and recession. The total unemployment rate for 2010 stood at 31 per cent, according to the State Statistics Office.

But the prospects are particularly bleak for Macedonia’s older workers. Over 50s make up almost one fifth of the jobless population and they find it hardest to get new jobs. They are far from alone.
