80 Euros for $100 is not a very good rate and from my experience using an ATM still gets you a better rate than using an exchange service.
It would be interesting to see how easy a tourist visa was to obtain for Czechs or Pols. Like Mexico which is located near the US only some of the population can get tourist visas. People that are in need of employment usually can't get any type of visa.
It's when there is no need for any type of visa that interests me. The fact that a Pol or Czech needs a visa means that things are still controlled. Needing a Visa does not mean "freely". Holland and Germany in my opinion travel back and fourth "freely".
I can remember back when the Dmark was so low that $35-$40 got you laid at Oase and this is in fact a big change. Thus I've experienced a 50% increase which makes a huge difference for US visitors.
As AGIG stated it's more what the US and EU governments feel works for their economies.
We'll have to start counting the Pols and Czechs who work at the clubs in the future. As it stands the ones I find were able to enter Germany from marriages to Germans. This is also common among the women from Asia and South America.
