Hi , Can anyone suggest me that whether my decision to do master's in Business or management related course from Latvia in comparison to some other country like Germany or canada would be right considering lower cost of living and education ? And what are the chances of PR in latvia and most importantly jobs for Indian students part tym and full tym aftr graduation , pay rate and all .

Thanks in advance

Lower cost of education actually means lower education. It also depends what university in Latvia you choose. Check European Ratings for more info.

As about the part jobs for foreign students, it already has been discussed on this forum widely earlier. Unemployment level in Latvia is in range of 10-15% each year, and these are only official stats. You need to know Latvian language at least at the lowest level to get even the badly paid job. Not sure if you could expect whatever you have planned.

No jobs for international students in Riga Latvia just hotel bar pub jobs as a waiter and salaries or wages just less then 2 euros..
Some IT companies they have good opportunities but they requires skilled persons like programmers or developers.
If you have enough money you can study medical field its cheaper rather then in India and Pakistan.
In Latvian universities specially in Riga Technical University(RTU) and University of Latvia(UL) or other higher institutes studies are not up to the level like other EU countries better if you want to study you can do your own country.
Their is a opportunity for Erasmus program...But Universities have some issues with students they just spending time for money and earn money on Erasmus program in Germany or other countries thats why now days they are rounding of Erasmus programs its hard to get
I have experience for Erasmus program and masters studies in RTU...its hard to say i am satisfy for RTU studies.

Do you mean per hour?

You're right on everything. I've mentioned this many times in this and other threads.
Thanks for your opinion, worth to know!

I find it very strange that a Pub or restaurant would only pay 2-3 euros an hour to it's staff, given that with the low taxes in Latvia and low propriety value should permit at least 4-5 Euros..

It would seem that it's a combination of the owners of these places exploiting the workers and the workers themselves seemingly being ok with slaving their lives away?

Any thoughts on the economic mechanism behind all of this inequality?

You're a bit wrong here... there are high taxes in Latvia!

But here... you may be right!

It's a well-known fact, that among all three Baltic states, Latvia has the worst economical position and is known as the land of cheap workers, and heavy EU donations. IMHO Latvian government doesn't have good economists, they only relay on kind of bookkeeping and trying to adjust the budget like it would be a sour family budget, with no strategy and tension to provide Latvians a better living. They only know how to boost up taxes on almost everything and I doubt they ever earned a penny with their own brains.

You probably know that in the last 10-15 years, many young people changed Latvia for UK, Ireland, or other EU countries, because here, they were not having any perspectives of a good life.

Latvian taxes are quite low aren't they?

25% top income tax, is what I read, which is low compared to Italy, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden etc.


sales tax is maybe a bit higher than usual but not by much, IMO

Does anyone here run a business in Latvia?

Yes, I think it's better to work in other countries than to stay in Latvia, unless you plan to do a business which is either making money abroad or you are exploiting the cheap labour, in a way.

But I have the feeling there is a psychological or social element to it, as if the people here expect to work their butts off and not get paid much, like it's their duty in life or something.

I thought the economic situation was best in Estonia, then in Latvia and then Lithuania.

Are you saying the Lithuanian economy is doing better than Latvia?

Bluesphere:

At least I suppose so; the fact is that Lithuanians have a lot of business in Latvia - food and construction markets, building and servicing companies, etc. At the time Latvians do not have a lot of businesses open in the Baltic states at all. Yes, I also suppose the best economics is in Estonia now.

Bluesphere:

25% top income tax, is what I read, which is low compared to Italy, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden etc.

The biggest problem here is that you count the part which any employee must pay. Imagine that you want to get 1,000 EUR salary on hands; employee actually should reserve for you 1,250 EUR. Besides of it, there is social tax which is split between an employer and employee, and a few other taxes which company should pay. Roughly speaking, if you want 1,000 EUR on hand, employee should reserve about 1,500 for you. This is actually big money for Latvian business.

Also, let's not forget about other taxes Latvia has... 21% of a value added tax for ANY products in ANY shops (no discounts for milk, bread etc. - whatever you buy, you always pay 21% extra to any sum). Car owner's taxes are boosted 5-6 times in about 5 years; and they will continue to grow. This year, there was introduced a "free" electricity market, which actually boosted up electricity fees for about 19-20 eurocents per kWh - I suppose, this is one of the biggest electricity fees in Europe; now imagine how many companies are tied up with electricity - EVERYONE. Now add dying and leaving people, and count on about 250,000 bureaucrats in Latvia, they all need their salaries paid for almost nothing - this all could briefly explain where the worker's money goes.

Bluesphere:

It's a dangerous thing I know some of my friends closed their small companies this year, it became unprofitable exactly because of high taxes growing each year and non-predictable tax politics, which doesn't provide anything stable.

This year's government's proposal was also an obligate "social tax" - even if you don't have enough of income, they proposed that everyone should pay about 100 EUR per month as a social insurance. I'm not sure if such thing will be introduced, but this definitely will let people hide their income.
