Labour Migration from Romania to the EU Point of Weakness in the Romanian Economy
Manea, Ludmila Daniela
The effects of the integration process on the labour market may spring, on the one hand, from the adjustments of the production factors market, produced by the free circulation of goods and, on the other hand from the workforce movement from one country to another. The mobility of workforce depends on differences in wages and in the occupancy /unemployment rate. The workforce mobility may be regarded as the best indicator for the functioning of an integrated workforce market. Theoretically, the more integrated the national workforce markets are, the greater will be the workforce influxes from regions with low GDP/ per capita and increased unemployment rate to regions with higher income and low unemployment rate. Romania has been a country exporting workforce for years, mainly for economic reasons. The international migration can be considered one the sources for the problems on the labour market, but can be also regarded as one of the solutions.
