Migrants have revived ailing Greek agriculture

Migrants have saved Greek farming from collapse over the last 10 years, providing it with cheap labor but also a much-needed injection of new blood who took on jobs that young Greeks were unwilling to do, according to a new report by the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA). A third of people working in intensive farming in Greece are foreigners, according to the AUA, while workers hired on a daily basis to carry out manual labor in the agricultural sector are almost exclusively migrants.
