What do Foreign Workers do for the Netherlands?

As the Netherlands heads to the polls for what has been one of the most contentious elections for years, In the Balance is in the tech city of Eindhoven.

As the Netherlands heads to the polls for what has been one of the most contentious elections for years, In the Balance is in the tech city of Eindhoven, home to a high concentration of international workers. Ten percent of the city's workforce comes from abroad, so will any of that change after the election with anti-immigration, anti-EU politicians like Geert Wilders predicted to do well? Manuela Saragosa visits one of the Netherlands' biggest tech companies, ASML, and hears from international workers and the local Dutch population about how Eindhoven absorbs so many foreign workers every year.
