WARSAW | The tables have now turned for job seekers in Europe. As austerity and unemployment drives young people from Spain, Portugal, Italy and Greece in search of work, Poland is rapidly becoming an attractive destination for international job hunters.
By Luis Arroyo, in Madrid | Poland is one of those countries whose contrast surely must give food for thought to the believers in the inflexible laws of the European common currency.
