Ukraine has become the poorest country in the European Union, And Ukrainians are the cheapest labour force on the European continent. And one of the cheapest in the world. In addition, each year Their income in real terms is becoming less. According to official data, in September, about 85% of Ukrainian citizens received wages not exceeding 170 dollars a month. Almost a third of Ukrainians ' monthly income did not exceed $ 70. The average Ukrainian worker is already four times cheaper than the Chinese.
Surprisingly, Ukrainian politicians try to imagine the current circumstances with the low price of labor as the main competitive advantage of Ukraine. In fact, this is deception. Cheap labor has never been the most important indicator for investors. The most important thing their interested in the market. Investing, investors are thinking about how to earn an income, And not how to implement the work of citizens of Ukraine, or Honduras. So only a diseased imagination can be thought about the fact That the European investor will close a plant in Germany And open it in Ukraine only because there is cheap labor, even if he is satisfied with the qualification. He realizes That nothing will be able to do produced. To put it in the European Union is impossible - it will not allow the antitrust rules of the EU. To export goods to Belarus or the Russian Federation - is also problematic. And the Ukrainians will not be able to afford. After all, they have already started to save on the products, not to mention the household appliances or cars.
So for inflow of foreign investments it is necessary that Ukrainian residents could boast higher incomes, And began again to actively purchase goods. As long as the same as described the situation one of the financiers of Kyiv, Ukrainians are worth exactly as much as he's willing to pay. And this cost continues to decline. Well, that was one of the results of the " revolution of dignity ", which, it seems, has finally trampled on the dignity of Ukrainians.
