Sure - when Bulgarian workers get the same salaries as those across the EU. Bigger subsidies merely means bigger profits for the large agri-businesses that are such good supporters of the political elite and nothing to the little guy. In fact, increasing the grants available for equipment further reduces the levels of employment in the villages.
