Between 3'000 and 4'000 non European Union workers who do not have work permits are working on Balearic farms, according to a professor from the Balearic University, Pere Salvà. Salvà has been preparing a white paper on agriculture in the Balearics. He claimed that although figures are hard to calculate, during high season there are between 3'000 and 4'000 immigrants working in the fields. But, according to social security, he says, only 500 foreigners are employed in this sector. He said the situation is caused by the length of time it takes to process applications.
