I have just made several changes to this article - please see the history for a list of changes. In addition to changes I have already made, there is one further issue. The entire "guestworker controversy" seems to have been staged. Alena's employer usgang.tv is owned by the same company that owns German yellow press paper BILD. BILD journalists specifically asked a Swiss politician for a controversial statement about Alena (a German) working in Switzerland - and received the aimed-at PR for their own webshow.

I would like to get somebody else's okay before I delete or majorly edit the entire passage. Thanks. Fabiaflora (talk) 00:55, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
