Foreign workers' and jobless' numbers almost equal
The latest on granting more work permits in 2020 is the last of the kind adopted by the Government of Croatia, since the quota regime will be cancelled next year with market liberalization through the new law on foreign nationals. However, the size of this quota indicates that the number of foreign workers needed in Croatia is approaching the number of jobless people in the country. The new quota for foreign workers is only 10,000 smaller than the number of unemployed people by the end of August 2019. The Government has indirectly admitted this way that the status of the unemployed would not change in future.
