Turks Eye Europe for Jobs

(Bloomberg)–Almost half the respondents in a poll of 1,326 Turkish people in 20 Turkish cities said they would like to work in another European Union country should Turkey become a member of the bloc–Stern magazine reported. Twenty percent of the people surveyed between Nov. 8-19 by Nuremberg-based Gesellschaft fuer Konsumforschung said they would like to work in Germany while 29 percent said they would like to work in another EU country. Of those wishing to work in Germany–71 percent would like to bring their family–the poll showed–Stern said in an e-mailed statement.

Seventy-six percent of the respondents said they want Turkey to join the EU–42 percent said Germans would like Turkey to become a member–and 38 percent said Germans are opposed to Turkey’s membership. Stern said the poll is representative of 65 percent of Turkish people living in cities. Its margin of error is 5 percent.
