Romanian migrant workers hit by import ban

The Spanish town of Fraga illustrates how Romanian seasonal workers in Southern Europe are also feeling the effects of the Russian sanctions, Florin Manole writes in his blog for the Spanish daily Adevărul: "The war in Ukraine can be felt as far away as Fraga, all because of globalisation. ... The Kremlin took European products off the shelves, and with them 900,000 tonnes of Spanish pears and nectarines. Now work has ground to a halt in Fraga. Seven trucks have come back full of fruit. Now it will be shipped off to other parts of Europe. ... War hits the workers worst of all; capital's still doing fine. True, EU Commissioner Cioloş has promised help to companies hit by the conflict, but he hasn't said a word about the workers who are losing their jobs. Life will go on in Spain, with or without the nectarines. But a good few euros are missing that will never be so easily earned in Romania."
