Add to this all those who themselves or whose forefathers emigrated over the past 150 years and who no longer are CH-citizens, you see the total picture. The new restrictions against East European seasonal agricultural workers may convince quite many Swiss farmers that farming in Switzerland is a no-future-thing and that emigrating to countries where farming is easier and more profitable may be an interesting option

I however expect agriculture to try to find replacement for the "barred" East Europeans in Spain, Portugal and Greece. Many Spaniards and Greeks who only three years ago would have refused even to consider leaving the country may now consider differently.
