    Just got an email from a Romanian friend who is in UK on a student visa. It seems there's a law in UK that requires them to get a work permit in order to get a job. This applies only to Romanian and Bulgarian citizens (not other EU citizens). Problem is it takes about 3-7 months until they release the work permit (probably because of bureaucracy). Because of this, a lot of people who made sacrifices to afford to go there, hoping they can get a job so they can support themselves through school, now have to return essentially wasting their time and money.

    If you are an UK citizen or resident please help by signing this petition:

    Also, if you can, spread the word.

    I would bet that there are some UK folks on here that would help your friend get that visa too.

    Hope they pipe up and offer some help.
