The French far-right National Front party called the opening of EU's labor markets to Romanians and Bulgarians "absurd".

"The opening of the labor markets for Romanian and Bulgarian citizens is absurd in times of complete economic crisis and a period of mass unemployment", said the party of Marine Le Pen in a press release published by French Liberation Daily.

"Along with the outdated Posted Workers EU directive, the full opening of labor markets will further reinforce the unfair competition, whose victims were the workers and the small and medium-sized businesses", Le Pen continued.

"In addition, this reform will be interpreted in Romania and Bulgaria as a signal for further immigration to Western Europe and in particular to France", the National Front argued.

The nationalist party claimed that the situation should be changed respectively by the "removal of the Posted Workers Directive and the rapid reintroduction of border control."

"The issue of our membership in the EU should be subject to consultation with the French citizens", the press release of the National Front concludes.

As of 1 January, Romanians and Bulgarians have received the right to work freely across the EU, seven years after joining the bloc. The change has prompted some fears of mass-migration, particularly from Britain and Germany.

What many Westerners fail to grasp is the enormous cultural differences between European Bulgarians and Roma Bulgarians. The young Bulgarians will do any job to earn honest money, the roma will steal almost anything to gain dishonest money.

There goes the French shit…..

I thought the EU was designed so countries could trade freely with each other without all the different exchange rates. What we will witness in Europe is the rise of nationalism, there is no unified Europe and Germany will lead the way with nationalism. Look at what government is doing in Europe, it is collapsing. Unemployment is very high among the youth and this will not change because of the increased taxes etc driving businesses into the dirt. France is beyond stupid, just look at their leader, a socialist who is trying the same stuff that has failed time and again. What we have here people is a bunch of idiots trying to hold onto power.

This is just pure racial discrimination coming from Madame Le Pen's party. Whatever the EU is or is not, everyone should have equal rights. Isn't that the whole point of what it was established for in the first place? The Froggys can't have it both ways, especially since they have allowed masses of Muslims into their own country and now cannot get rid of them. Perhaps this is your Karma getting back at you France, considering your history in the French colonies, and not to mention your Nuclear bomb tests all over the Pacific. And nobody invited you there either. How dare you be so arrogant.
