The exodus of labor force and the impact on the Romanian economy

I. Hurjui, C. M. Hurjui, M. Socoliuc

Abstract: The free movement of workers within the European Union has led to a situation where, after 2007, the year of Romania's accession to the European Union, there is a strong tendency for the workforce to migrate to the EU Member States due to the large disparities between the salaries offered by the Romanian employers and the ones from EU. This has a negative effect on the Romanian economy in the sense that the sums of money sent annually by Romanians from abroad do not offset their contribution to Romania's GDP in the situation where the Romanians would have worked in their country. The expenditures with the schooling of Romanians going abroad is in fact a subsidy from the Romanian state for the other EU member states, as they freely benefit of qualified workforce and without spending any amounts from their public budgets.
Keywords: workforce, immigration, GDP, education costs.
