Would you move to another country in order to make money and support your family?

Tuesday, January 31
“Yes I would move to any place in Europe or the U.S. because life in Georgia is becoming harder and harder. It’s impossible to support the family with the shameful salary of 200 lari, especially if you are the only person working in the family.”
Tamuna, Teacher, 27

“Yes of course I would go abroad and even baby-sit with the nastiest baby to get away from this country where no one respects your education, skills and experience.”
Elene, Housewife, 34

“I do not plan do go anywhere currently. As for the future, I do not know… If I make such a decision I will go either in Germany or in Ukraine.”
Levan, Student, 20

“I have actually never thought about it but there are a lot of people around me who actually want to leave the country for the particular reason that they can’t get any job here.”
Lali, Journalist, 22

“I would, but not for support and not for a long time. I would move to get education and to travel and see other countries."
Nodar, Blogger, 26

“For this, I would go. Country has no serious importance; I would pay attention to the kind of work I will have to do.”
Anna, Journalist, 35

“Surely, I would go to Britain, U.S., or maybe some EU countries.”
Revaz, Bank employee, 21

“In our country it's so awfully difficult to get a job with a satisfactory salary that if another country gives me this opportunity why not. But under no circumstances [would I stay] forever. I still badly love my little Georgia.”
Keti, MA student, 21
