There are plenty of immigrants from the former Yugoslavia in the Greater Toronto Area. Most of them cannot work at the skilled jobs for which they trained in Europe. For example, I know a Croatian carpenter who is now a medical secretary, a Serbian ordained minister who is now a truck driver, a Serbian sailor who is now a road toll booth operator, and a Macedonian sheep farmer who now owns a small café for the lunchtime crowd of factory workers. Those are the lucky ones. The streets are not paved with gold here.
