Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's why everyone flocks here.  The "myth" of opportunity and social mobility.  

When I was in college, I worked at a bagel store. The store hired some Polish immigrant cheap to clean the floor. A grim task with all the fish we also sold. Within in a year, he was a baker. Two years later, he owned his own store.
