Greeks Are Willing to Take Up Undeclared Jobs or Even Migrate For Work

workersThe problems created by the five-year economic crisis in Greek society are evident.
A survey conducted by Kapa Research and published at “To Vima” newspaper reveals a lot. One of the survey’s main conclusions is that Greeks are willing to do anything to find work, from migrating to accepting undeclared work, meaning working “illegally”.
59.6% of those participating in the survey said they would change the field of their employment in order to find work. In the question “What would you be willing to do to get a job?” 4 out of 10 replied that they would agree in taking up a part-time job and 41.9% that they would accept to take up undeclared work. At the same question, a large percentage of respondents said they would seriously consider migrating to another country for work (38.2%).
When they were asked what the main priority for the country should be nowadays, 79.1% answered “jobs creation” and 19.7% “reduction of public deficits and debt.”
Apart from unemployment, most respondents said that the taxation imposed on them is unfair. Specifically, 80.2% of respondents said that the extraordinary solidarity levy tax is unjust, while the unified property tax (ENFIA) reached 66% and heating oil 75.5%.
Farmers (73.8%), businessmen (72%) and young scientists (64.1%) are at the top three socio-professional groups that can contribute more to the country’s development in the coming years.
When asked if they believe that the situation of the Greek economy is improving, deteriorating or remaining about the same compared to last year, 40.5% answered “worse”, 34.1% that it “remains the same”, while 25.1% said it is “improving.”
