- Although I was offered to stay abroad, I returned to Serbia to found a family, thinking that hard work and effort will lead me a workplace - said Sonja.
However, she encountered injustice in employment. At one time, she won the court dispute after 3 years, but nothing has changed. In several occasions, the fact that she was a Doctor had a negative impact and she was refused with the excuse that she is "overqualified".
While someone got the job with diplomas they got after several months, Sonja with her biography can't land a job.
- I am aware that my case is not alone and that many have similar problems, but the question remains, is that system of values sustainable and where does it lead? Is it possible that the state is pushing away the valuable people and those who think that normal life in it is normal - asks Sonja Pajic.
