Georgians become cheap work force

2010-07-23 18:04

Pronouncing that Nesterenko became a "scapegoat" for Georgia's Association of trade unions. As it turns out, only those who take care of the rights of the country's citizens have the right to speak about problems of Georgian labor force. Moscow officials have no right to do so since as Petriashvili says, they manipulate Georgia's energy resources, ban imports of Georgian produce, deport Georgians legally working in Russia, as well as "pursue ethnic cleansings" and "occupy Abkhazia and South Ossetia".

Accordingly, Europeans have no right to criticize Georgia either since they send echelons of Georgian migrants back home.


On the whole, Petriashvili's wrath was vain. Though Nesterenko's phrase had its effect on Georgian trade unions making them become hyperactive. In addition to threats to Khelvachaur factory Petriashvili proactively warned Puma company that also plans to transfer its factories from Turkey to Georgia.

The head of trade unions promised that unless the new employer voluntarily proposes decent labor conditions and salaries, this all will be demanded at the protest actions. By the way, Puma takes fancy to Georgia exactly for its cheap working force. The first company in Ajaria was opened last year comprising 620 employees whose average salary is GEL 200-250 with GEL 126 as the current cost of living per month (nearly USD 80).
