Tourism in Croatia booms but not the employment

Published on : Tuesday, August 1, 2017

cr-17This month is the booming season for the tourism in Croatia, but there is the shortage of the workers in the hotels and restaurants.



There is at least the shortage of 2,700 workers in Croatia. According to the Worker’s Union, the poor pay and bad working conditions give a clinch in the employment of the tourism sector.



Eduard Andric, President of the Croatian Tourism and Services Trade Union commented that the poor working conditions are the key reason for the lack of workers in tourism. Low salaries and the lack of management fall behind average by 17 to 20 per cent.



Despite the record growth in recent years and with all the investments made, instead of enlarging the number of workers employed full time, Croatian tourism has constantly lowered the numbers, while the number of seasonal workers is on the rise.



Eduard Andric said that the poor working conditions deterred the people from opting for careers in tourism. It is because they don’t want to opt for a profession where they work for 6 months in a year.



Eduard Andric said this is making the condition of the tourism growth slower. The improvements are only made in the coastal parts.



According to him, there are many people who finished the tourism studies in high school discontinue studies in this profession and search for work in other sectors.
