In all fairness Scott, I think that the 'harsh economic realities' have affected the whole world and certainly Western Europe. I assume this has a lot to do with the amount of Expats packing up and going home to seek work or get a better deal for their pensions. I still reckon that a fair days pay for a fair day's work is the best we can offer and should not subject us to rip-off merchants just because they are poor. Utopia, I know, but that is my take on things. There are certain elements of the Bulgarian population that have never done a days work other than thieving and even if you gave them 100 Lev per day to spend, it wouldn't change their attitude towards life for free.
