Over 60 percent of Czechs believe that work opportunities, social certainty and personal safety were greater prior to the fall of communism, suggests an opinion poll by CVVM published on Tuesday. By contrast, respondents expressed satisfaction with the amount of freedom they now enjoy; around 80 percent of those polled said that opportunities to study and work abroad had improved since 1989, as had access to free information. Two-thirds of those polled said they thought the political changes had been “worth it”.
