New York - A recent article polling Moroccan professionals shows an alarming trend of people under age 35 looking to move to other countries in search of better compensation and working conditions. According to the article, 74% of those working abroad wish to come back and invest their skills in Morocco; however, lack of local resources and poor responsiveness by companies prevent them from doing so. According to the article, Moroccan physicians are particularly dissatisfied with being sent to distant parts of the country to work for low salaries. They frequently have to serve in regions with underdeveloped infrastructure, which motivates few people to pursue this career.
