Czech Republic: Free Plane Tickets Offered to Migrants


The Czech Republic will offer a free plane ticket and $649 to foreign workers who agree to return home after losing their jobs in the economic downturn, the government said Monday. Interior Minister Ivan Langer said many unemployed foreigners lacked cash to buy a ticket home because they had to pay exorbitant fees or bribes — up to $12,000 — to agencies that secured the jobs for them.
