Luxembourg: A haven for tax evaders? (part 2)

We meet Luxembourg's largest immigration group: the Portuguese, who arrived here in the 1970s to work in the steel mills. Four decades later, a new generation of Portuguese fleeing economic hardship at home are trying their luck in the EU's wealthiest state. Also, are Luxembourgers lost in translation? We find out about the challenges of mastering the country's three official languages. Finally, we meet Green MEP Claude Turmes.
