Campaign in favor of foreigners

Ohne uns keine...

Without us no Research
Without immigrants Switzerland wouldn't be so innovative. More than 60% of the researchers in the big Pharmaceutical companies don't have a Swiss Passport.

Without us no Play
In the Super League 60% of the players were not born Swiss.

Without us no Nursing
More than 40% of the nursing staff doesn't have a Swiss Passport, and 3 out of 4 new doctors come from abroad.

Without us no Chocolate
Aroung 60% of the people working in chocolate production don't have a Swiss Passport.

Without us no Construction
69% of the building workers don't have a Swiss Passport.

Re: Campaign in favor of foreigners

Absolutely. I was in Steamboat Colorado a few years ago. The politicians had had a massive 'clear out' of foreign workers and were really pleased with themselves. THEN they realised (duh!) that they didn't have sufficient staff to service agriculture and tourism, and many other sectors and had to have massive recruitment of ... foreigners.

A bit different to the situation here, where many foreigners work in other sectors.

...SVP would not get any votes... , that would mean that they had to focus on the real issues...what a pity, but maybe it's better for all that they stay from real politics...

Re: Campaign in favor of foreigners

Good one, it's always good and important to point out the positives of foreigners in the country, especially at a time when the negatives are discussed!

Keep in mind though that a vast majority of Swiss are fully aware of it, including the SVP.

Umm, no.

They are the largest party, but at even say 30%, the vast majority do NOT support the SVP!
