Remember that there are people who like, who really need to work, and they work!
Then, there are cypriots...


The Cypriots you're referring to, are the one's with Greek brains.


Those are Ottoman Greeks you are talking about and the sooner they are deported back to Albania, the better! :)

Where's Max? :lol:

Are you a day porter now? :lol:

Unfortunately the young Cypriots wont go to work unless its well paid and ofcourse at a certain domain.The foreigners get the jobs that probably just 10% of the young cypriots would ever apply for.They prefer living with parents money,house,car etc.And their excuse is i dont want to work for 1000 euro per month,the boss is cheating me.I hate meeting those youngsters who do nothing with their lives but still they think that they are top notch personalities who achieved a lot in life...
Ofcourse the foreigners should know that cyprus existed before 2004 and 2007 when poland first and the romania and bulgaria entered EU and they came here.It was full of hotels,restaurants,houses being built etc and everything was going great,everybody was working at that time and especially before 2000 people used to have 2 and 3 jobs.When i was a student 10 years ago i used to work every summer as a waiter and all of my colleagues were cypriots,at the restaurants 90% cypriots,the same at every job,even if for someone who comes now here this sounds unreal.And i have to say the service was way better than nowadays.What i am trying to say is that cypriots used to be hard workers but as we all see this generation became a lazy one.I hope this economic crisis will change things.
The problem is not the foreigners but our lately changed mentality and way we see life.

A very accurate analysis of the situation. We became very lazy in Cyprus because everything was going so well, but we seem to be unable to get back to the culture that reigned after 1974 when people were willing to go anywhere and do anything to survive now that the economy is in the crapper!

I have to agree as well, 15/20 years ago tourists would go back to the same places , because of the "family" run places , year after year.Now the staff change every season if not more .There are two places I know in Paphos , which are still family run are they are always busy with repeat tourists and locals ....

I was a moderator of a website, also my technology knowledge is proven by my papers my jobs indicate that i was skilled enough for them.but thats the general problem
of the market, bussinesmen wants profit without cost of employment,later they do cry about the unskilled workers that cannot work efficiently.
alas my friend i dont care if you didnt choose any of my kind,but whether you like it or not we will keep on working and searching for a job according to what we worth, the age of slavery ended eons ago...

I am very impressed by your experience, not!!!

Pieces of paper from a University are meaningless.

Understanding what your prospective customers need is the thing.
