RIBNOVO, BULGARIA - JANUARY 12: A man on a motorcycle transports a load of fresh tobacco on January 12, 2014 in Ribnovo, Bulgaria. According to locals jobs were common in the region until the financial crisis of 2008; today only the local tobacco and textile industries offer much hope for employment. In the winter months Ribnovo, with its population of approximately 3,000, is bustling, though with jobs in the region so scarce the vast majority of able-bodied villagers migrate abroad starting in the spring to Greece, Spain, Germany and other western European countries where they find work in construction, agriculture, logistics, landscaping and other seasonal jobs before retrning to Ribnovo again before next winter. Some western European governments have voiced concern over a potential influx of Bulgarians and Romanians due to the recent end of EU labour restrictions, though locals in Ribnovo dismiss the idea, citing that most of those who have sought work already ventured abroad years ago. Ribnovo is predominantly inhabited by Pomaks, a Muslim ethnic minority who are the descendants of Christian Bulgarians who converted to Islam during Ottoman rule. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
