Should Romania & Bulgaria Join the EU?

Joining the European Union doesn’t guarantee economic prosperity for the whole population. It can have adverse effect as joining the EU means abiding by its laws, which some see as an erosion of their country’s sovereignty. In Poland – now a member of the EU – there is shortage of skilled workers because of their massive migration mainly to England. So this means if Bulgarians and Romanians have skills needed in rich countries of the EU like France, Germany and UK, they will leave for them leaving their own country in need of a skilled labour that will no longer be easily available and at affordable prices.

But at the same time it can be an opportunity for the Romanians and the Bulgarians to be more competitive to enter the EU market as active partners and not living on EU aid and subsidies, which will make of them just satellite states or small brothers needing the protection of their big brothers
