Three years after Romania joined the EU, most of the Romanian employees with the Commission still work in low profile jobs. As many as 549 Romanians, namely 277 administrators and 272 assistants work at EU Commission. Nevertheless the Romanians hold low posts and therefore they earn the poorest wages.
Likewise, the EU Commission numbers 272 Romanian assistants, 268 of which are AST1- AST3, from 11 ranks, possibly. It is worth reminding the readers that the Romanian assistants speak fluently two or even three foreign languages and have one university degree, at the least, master degrees and even doctor degrees taken both in Romania and in other EU countries.
