Though there have been improved conditions of work for immigranting workers by establishing reforms and finally dissolving restrictions by 2014, there are still indisputable few problems for a free entrance in all EU-countries. Especially new members of the EU Romania and Bulgaria hope to be integrated in open labor markets as soon as a special arrangement will be accomplished. Pursuant to the statistics of Commissions 2006 shows less than one percent of the working age population in all old EU member states except Austria (1.4%) and Ireland (3.8%).
Most of progressive developments of the EU-members to enable immigrants access to work are demonstrated in Austria and Germany. In contrast in the Netherlands it remains to find some solutions accomplishing with the lack of workers or high numbers of illegal workers in some sectors.
