Unable to find qualified locals, Czech firms are keen to hire plumbers, welders, fitters and machinists from Ukraine, iDnes.cz reported on Wednesday. There is such a shortage in some areas that companies are willing to overlook the language barrier, the news website said. A draft government project to attract Ukrainian employees has only been targeted at university graduates but may be amended. The vice president of the Czech Chamber of Commerce said without Ukrainians some Czech firms would be unable to fulfill their orders and collapse.
