WhO GOES 
WHERE 
TO FIND WORK ^ 
Western Europe has become a magnet 
for foreign workers, as the map makes 
plain. The workers come from a variety 
of countries, most of which are in or 
near Western Europe, of course, and 
all of which have substantial unemploy 
ment problems. European employers 
are now ranging even farther afield in 
their search for workers.* Cheap air- 
charter fares make it possible for many 
of the foreign workers from the Medi 
terranean area to take their annual va 
cations at home, and their ties to their 
native countries remain stronger than 
those of traditional immigrants. 
The map does not show it, but the 
foreign-worker phenomenon has re 
cently spread to Eastern Europe. Com 
munist East Germany employs tens of 
thousands of Poles and Hungarians. 
They are officially known there as 
"foreign friends," but the social prob 
lems they create are much the same as 
those in the West.

workers in Europe's work force. But 
his figure, based on official statistics, 
nay understate the total number by as 
nuch as 10 percent because it does 
iot include illegal residents. West Ger- 
nany has the largest absolute number 
}f foreign workers, but foreigners make 
jp a larger proportion of the work 
orco in Switzerland and Luxembourg 
both 27 percent).
