Olympic Labour Shortage

It seems that there may be a shortage of cheap labour available to help with preparations for the London 2012 Olympics.

Poland will compete with Britain for workers to prepare the countries for the 2012 European Soccer Championships in Ukraine and Poland, versus the London Olympics being held the same year.

Polish Deputy Regional Development Minister, Jerzy Kwiecinski, said:

"The Polish minority is the largest in Ireland and England.

Britain is getting ready for the Olympics and Poland is getting ready for the Euro Championships. Workers will be needed here and there to help develop the needed infrastructure

Kwiecinski said that the Polish administration must create the right conditions to motivate the return of hundreds of thousands Poles, who have left Poland in search of jobs in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

It looks like the Olympics budget will have to be revised again, to take into account the increase in wage costs.
