finding a job in Crete is not easy at the moment. Many financial emigrants have moved to Greece in the last decades but with the recent financial crisis they compete over a limited number of jobs.
For someone who doesn't speak the language, like your friend's son, it will be difficult to get a job.
Perhaps he can try finding a job as a waiter or barman in tourist areas, but he will need to stay in Crete for 3-4 months.

Interestingly, it was reported recently in the UK press that orange juice will become a luxury item there because of the failure of the orange harvest in Florida and somewhere else which I can't remember. It's a pity the juice producers don't look further afield for their raw material.
With regard to foreign workers: we were told that here, in Apokoronas, that the it's the Moroccans who have undercut everyone with the price they are prepared to work for and that a lot of the Eastern Europeans have left.
