Our taxes are being hiked to pay for these unemployed migrant workers
Blame your (Probably Irish!) employers.
Are they embarasses???
Oh, and another thing, people who don't want to work at a farm, in production or at construction sites because they're too good for this sort of work when nothing else is available, that would be an embarrassment!
The Polish you talk about, work for their money because they're getting the opportunity. Now, imagine yourself when Ireland gets poor, and that there wouldn't be much work for you anymore. Would you consider working in Holland for a better wage when you were offered a job? Or would you rather be such a good patriot and sit on your ass all day, being utterly useless?
No my friend, anyone who does honest work is not an embarrassment and shouldn't be ashamed for anything.
I've worked with an Irish guy in Holland eight years ago. He recieved benefits aswell for a short while. But then again, he worked for his money earlier, so that means he had paid his taxes too..
;)In other words, he has the same rights!
