Swiss re­stric­tions.

Kathimerini English - - Business & Finance -

Switzer­land has ex­tended re­stric­tions on Bul­gar­i­ans and Ro­ma­ni­ans want­ing to work in the pros­per­ous nation. The Swiss gov­ern­ment says it will con­tinue to im­pose lim­its on the num­ber of na­tion­als from the two East­ern Euro­pean coun­tries who can ob­tain tem­po­rary or per­ma­nent res­i­dency per­mits. The re­stric­tions will now last un­til May 31, 2014, and af­fect job­seek­ers want­ing to work in the con­struc­tion, clean­ing, se­cu­rity or land­scap­ing sec­tors. The strong Swiss franc and high de­mand for la­bor has made Switzer­land an at­trac­tive des­ti­na­tion for cit­i­zens of other Euro­pean coun­tries. Switzer­land’s job­less rate stood at 3.4 per­cent in March.
