THIS is why we discourage people to come here if they NEED to work & don't have a job lined up

it makes the statement 'willing to do anything' pale into insignificance

Quote:
Alameda, Spain: The day Jose Antonio Perez Zembrana, 32, won the lottery here, he did not jump for joy or shout out.
He was pleased, of course. But around him were so many people from this village in the south of Spain who could have used the prize: two months of work selling admission tickets to the municipal pool.
The first time there were about 30 names for a handful of cleaning jobs lasting one month. Now, after nearly six years of recession, there are about 500 hopefuls.

This should go into a sticky thread - it is a very good indication of the problems here...

Yes, it should...but that won't stop would-be immigrants from telling us we're being 'negative' or that they know someone who came to Spain penniless, set upa business with no previous experience and is now a multi-millionaire with a Rolls, a private jet, a yacht and if he can do it....

You forgot the last bit, 'so if you want a chance at this no fail multi-level pyramid selling scam, send us lots of money now and we will ignore you immediately.....'

I've 'stuck' it temporarily, & I've added a link to the main FAQs thread in 'economic situation' so that we never lose it.....
