A mass exodus from Macedonia

Many young people leave Macedonia for work, despite assurances that the economy is improving.

    A third of workers in Macedonia are unemployed and ten percent of the country's population have left in the last decade.

    Despite government assurances that the economy will improve, parents still advise their children to head to different countries after graduating for the chance of a better life.
