Albanians are the most discriminating people in Europe against the poor. According to a report issued by the European Commission, 33% of Albanians judge others based on their incomes and work status. Meanwhile, this level is lower in other countries of the region or Europe. Although Albanians are poor, they’re more discriminating toward people on low incomes. According to an opinion poll carried out by the European Commission, 33% of respondents have said that they judge people based on their work and incomes.
If we compare this to other countries of the region, this level remains high. In Greece, only 17% of respondents say that they are discriminating, in Italy 12%, in Macedonia 20%, while in Montenegro only 11%. Meanwhile, the lowest level of prejudice against poor people is in Sweden, Austria, Germany and Spain. On the other hand, Albanian teenagers have a lower tendency of judging people based on their incomes and work status, while people from the age of 25 to 34 are the most inclined ones.
