DW: Eastern Europe – Labor migration on the rise

Poland and Hungary continue to oppose the European Union migrant quotas. But despite their anti-immigration rhetoric, immigration from non-EU countries is growing.

“I could not have imaged three years ago that I would be sitting in Warsaw drinking Polish beer,” says Shourya Singh, a risk management consultant from Varanasi in northeast India, who works at Ernst & Young (EY), a professional services company, in the Polish capital. 

Shourya told DW that he was headhunted by an international staffing agency via LinkedIn and worked on a contract for Dutch bank ING before joining EY. 

Shourya’s story is not uncommon.
