The difference between demand and supply on the labor market in Negresti is quite high.
Job opportunities for citizens are scarce and many emigrate outside Romania in the hope that they will build a better life.
The only job opportunities offered within the locality are in agriculture, livestock, commercial or woodworking shops, but there are far more people looking for jobs than there are positions.
The Roma community of Negresti deals with weaving wicker, which produces various household items such as baskets, chairs, and tables, and woodworking which produces spoons, plates, spindles, chairs, and bowls.
Moreover, in coordination with Romani Butiq, a handicraft cooperative has been founded. Currently the cooperative include seven members, but the association is looking to expand.
The major problems encountered include procuring raw materials and the lack of places for the marketing of products.
