Austerity measures taken by the Greek government have led to a significant reduction in personal income. Feeling the pressure, many Greeks are seeking better-paid jobs abroad.
According to the government, the number of Greeks applying to work abroad is rising. More and more Greek students studying overseas are deciding against returning home. A survey conducted amongst 500 young Greeks suggests over half are willing to move abroad.
