Aren't there about 20% of the population of Switzerland people of foreign descent?

More bilge. How does a cretin like you - a mere senior member - get to childishly abuse the rep system by giving out neg rep?

You will need to define the situation a bit more. Which is my point.

I was working there a total of 5 weeks well away from the capital, just before and just after they joined the EU and only amongst Romanians. Great guys but poor quality and lazy workers, probably a hangover from the communist era. I can only go on what I heard about the gypsies but heard so many tales it would be a bit daft to pretend there was no problem with them - isolated and crime ridden was the general impression. In other words, the same as you hear everywhere else.

No, I shouldn't think they did.

People should have seen the Poles after the collapse of the USSR, and look at them now, or at least some of them. It seems, from my limited experience, that the uselessness of the workers, and how long it lasts, is in inverse proportion to the amount of money invested in the country - otherwise it's just a mental extension of the overmanning (designed to ensure full employment) and the lack of motivation (just doing a job for the state) of the old days.
I doubt the Roma will ever voluntarily change though, no matter which country they live in.
