Why is everybody complaining about the Poles, or for that matter, any other nationality is taking our jobs?? You see the thing is, most of the jobs that these immigrants are taking are the ones that Brits themselves don't want to do (for whatever reason) these jobs still need doing so the businesses will employ whoever wants/needs the jobs.

The only moan i have about immigrants working in the UK is this, the ones who are face to face and interact with the customer/consumer on a regular basis and cannot speak English to the level required to have a simple conversation.

They all say they were surprised to see the messy organization in their workplaces upon their arrival there.

Perhaps theyd be best placed within Polish government, the transport sector would be a great starting block.

Nothing wrong with a decent sandwich. If there was, why are they sold everywhere pre-packaged in the UK?

They are there for convenience, you might be able to survive on them if you work in an office but if you do manual work like myself you would never be able to get eniugh down you in half an hour to keep you going.

if you can't afford to eat 'good' food because you're on minimum wage, then you can't afford to be fussy. Anyway, the point is that it's possible to live on minimum wage, not what's desirable.

So people should just have to like it or lump it, is that what your saying?. If we all had that attitude then nothing would change. The minimum wage is sh@t and it is so out of greed and not necessity, if france can have their minimum wage set to nearly 9 euros per hour then why is ours £5.73.

That's enough for 5 lunches

So what happens on the other 2 days in the week.

But this is exactly it - you're choosing to eat fruit and yoghurt for starters. People on minimum wage don't have this luxury - it's one or the other. In fact, yoghurts are quite pricey in the UK.

Fruit is not a luxury and nor is yoghurt, they are both part of a healthy diet and we all no how much the government bangs on about us being healthy so its saves money for the cash strapped NHS.

As I said, beggars can't be choosers. If you're on minimum wage, it's often not a question of 'sense' but more a question of affording to eat.

Lets see them get past 50 on a diet like you have suggested.

Why is everybody complaining about the Poles, or for that matter, any other nationality is taking our jobs?? You see the thing is, most of the jobs that these immigrants are taking are the ones that Brits themselves don't want to do (for whatever reason) these jobs still need doing so the businesses will employ whoever wants/needs the jobs.

Haven't you heard yet that " poles do the jobs that brits don't want to do" is a lie.
If that was true then why do companies scheme with employment agencies so that they only sent polish people to they're work place, this little trick then allows them to employ them after 3 months with out the usual checks. Again if it was true then why is the work force 90% polish where i work when there are lots of british people that want to do the work.

Always has been, but the British press love to put the Brits down..of course we are all lazy benefit sroungers...

As for Delphs diet, student eat like that because they cant aford to, do you honestly think I want to slog my guts out for 37.5 hours a week so I can eat like a student?

So people should just have to like it or lump it, is that what your saying?.

Evidently we are greedy for wanting a better life! We now have a culture of casual labour in this country...more and more companies moving away from traditional employment, but towards a like it or lump here are the (lack of) conditions..This does not make for a stable economy...It just doesnt make sense how in 10 years we have ruined this country.

I think if they are so good at sorting out messy organisations why dont they stay and try to sort out the mess in their own country? Also, I cant imagine a British boss taking advice from these Polish upstarts

WOOOHOOO INTERESTING STUFF HERE:D
BY THE WAY JUST TO LET U KNOW -
polomintz
Listed occupation as a student, therefore probably never had a job. written by time means

I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MINIMUM WAGE TWAT!! I AM AT COLLEGE STUDYING TO GET A BETTER JOB,BETTER MONEY:D...DOH!!!!
GOD SOME PEOPLE ARE STUPID - IM NOT YOUR TYPICAL LAZY BRIT WHO SITS AT SCREWS THE BENIFITS SYSTEM - THE BENIFITS SYSTEM WAS INITIALLY DESIGNED TO HELP PEOPLE GET BACK ON THEIR FEET! YOU HAVE YOUR SCUM HOOLIGANS,ETC TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE WHOLE SYSTEM! - ITS THOSE PEOPLE THAT SHOULD BE TARGETED BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE GENUINELY ILL AND DISABLED ARE ALSO GETTING TAGGED ALONG THE SAME BRUSH!

WITH ALL THIS STUPID NONSENSE HAPPENING HERE IN THE UK I.E THE RECESSION -YOU ARE FAR BETTER OFF FINANCIALLY ON THE SICKNESS BENIFITS THAN U ARE WORKING! ITS A SAD FACT OF LIFE! IF THE GOVERNMENT STARTS INCREASING THE MINIMUM WAGE TO SAY £8-9 PER HOUR AND KEEPS THE COST OF LIVING AT THE SAME RATE, GUARANTEED, MOST PEOPLE WOULD GET OFF THEIR BACKSIDES AND START LOOKING FOR WORK!

HERE IS ME FOR EXAMPLE - IM ON BENIFITS AND STUDYING A 2 YEAR PART TIME DIPLOMA IN COMPUTER GRAPHIC ART AND DESIGN AND IM ENJOYING IT! COMMENT ALL YOU LIKE! I DONT BLOODY CARE! UNFORTUNATELY IM ILL AND I AM NOT GOING TO DISCLOSE MY ILLNESS TO ANYONE AS ITS MY BUSINESS! HENCE WHY IM ON BENIFITS!

HOWEVER IM DOING SOMETHING TO TRY AND MAKE MY LIFE BETTER FOR THE FUTURE! I HAVE BEEN WORKING FROM THE AGE OF 16 UNTILL THE AGE OF 20 AND AFTER THAT I WAS ILL FOR 4 YEARS! I AM USING THE SYSTEM TO GET BACK ON MY FEET! AFTER IVE GRADUATED, I CAN THEN SEEK FOR HELP FROM ALL THESE AGENCIES THAT HELP PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN SICK FOR A VERY LONG TIME!....RIGHT NOW! I AM UNEMPLOYABLE! AT THE MOMENT I HAVE VERY FEW QUALIFICATIONS AND IVE BEEN OUT OF WORK FOR A WHILE! DUE TO MEDICAL RECORDS - EMPLOYERS WONT ENTERTAIN ME!:(:(

THAT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE SH**! SO THE ONLY WAY I CAN GET BACK ON THE JOB MARKET IS THAT I GO BACK TO COLLEGE/UNI AND STUDY MY A** OFF! WHEN EMPLOYERS SEE THAT I WASNT SOME LAY ABOUT AND WAS DOING SOMETHING WITH MY LIFE WHILST I HAVE BEEN ILL, IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD IN MY C.V

I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST PEOPLE WORKING IN THE UK, Marcus brigstocke was born with a silver sppon in his mouth and doesnt understand about most working class people struggling to make ends meet period!! He sees things from middle upper class view!

I agree with him that poles are doing our jobs that we dont want yet they are taking our jobs! Yes we didnt want to work on the crappy minimum wage because we always want better! - There is nothing wrong with wanting better money and job prospects - everyone is entitled to that!

yeah! There is this culture in the uk i want i want i want and give me give me give me with out having to work for it! We should be greatful for what we have here, not many countries have a state system that will cough up tax payers money to help the poor and the "needy". people should take advantage of the system as a means to getting their lives back on track and that does take some time! and not use it as some kind of "luxury" that they are supposedly "entitled" too!

ShelleyS:
40 gas
35 elec
100 ct
at least 400 rent (even in a **** area, not sure how long youve been out of the counry?)
30 phone (land line)
25 mobi
60 water rates
10 tv (normal)
50 - 150 travel
100 food (given that some people eat fresh food)

yes! I agree with you on that - thats what the average brit spends! Although Im a little thrifty with my money and I have the advantage of that! When I was working and living in glasgow, my rent was about the same as shelly's and thats living in a one bedroom private let! She might have been using the pay monthly scheme for her electricity and gas - I was spending roughly £ 30 month on gas and electric on the prepayment meters, land line - i dont with out, I spent £25 a month on mobile - food wise - it varies from month to month - i tend to eat a lot of "reduced to clear/ best before shelf date" food which is still fresh but will cost me anything between £20-£30 a month or less! Sometimes if I cant find the food bargains I have to by no means pay the full price for food! which is roughly 80-100 pounds a month!

delphiandomine:
Unfortunately, the English seem to have forgotten that they themselves were immigrants in many parts of the world.
We are the masters and were invited and have contributed, we also intigrated...most Australians are actually Brits! My family amongst them....Do you think my family stick out! No they made their life they were give practically free passage to Aus...they dont even consider themselves English....This is the diifference!

i agree with you to a certain degree,Read your history sunshine - not just the english that were the masters and all that nonsense - SCOTLAND WAS THE ENGINE OF THE EMPIRE:D IF WASNT FOR US WHISKY DRINKING,PSYCHO MENTALIST SCOTS KICKING PEOPLES ASSES, SCARYING PEOPLE OFF WITH OUR GINGER HAIR, BAG PIPES AND CRAZY CELTIC TEMPERMENT - NOT TO FORGET THE IRISH DONE THEIR BIT TOO:D BUT IT WAS MOSTLY US DOING ALL THE LEG WORK!! WE HAD ENGINEERS,BRAINS, WE WERE ALSO VERY THRIFY WITH TRADE AND MONEY AND SO ON! BRITIAN ON THE WHOLE WONT BE ALL SO "SUPERIOR" AND THE EMPIRE WOULD NOT HAVE EXISTED IF IT WAS LEFT TO ENGLAND ON ITS OWN!! AS USUAL THEY USE US POOR SCOTS:p AS FREAKING GUINEA PIGS FOR FREAKING EVERYTHING LOL:D

OK YOU GUYS DID HELP ENCOURAGE THE WORLD TO SPEAK ENGLISH AND BRITAIN ON THE WHOLE WEVE ENGINEERED THIS MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY THAT WE LIVE IN ALL THANKS TO YEARS OF TRADE AND GOOD BUSINESS RELATIONS WITH THE WORLD:D

SEE WHEN US SCOTS GO ABROAD, WE HAVE A REPUTATION WORLD WIDE FOR LOYALITY,DECENCY, GOOD MANNERS AND SO ON. WE ALSO KNOW WHEN WE GO ABROAD THAT WE ARE THE FOREIGNERS IN THAT COUNTRY WHEN THE ENGLISH ARE ABROAD - EXCEPT THE VERY FEW I KNOW AND HEARD OF - ITS THIS ATTITUDE THAT THEYRE MORE SUPERIOR THAN EVERYONE ELSE AND WHEN THEY GO ON HOLIDAY I.E SPAIN - THEY DONT WANT TO SAMPLE THEIR CULTURE INSTEAD THEY WANT ENFORCE THEIR CULTURE ON THEIRS - THEYRE OFTEN TOO SCARED TO SAMPLE SPANISH CUISINE (WHICH IS HEALTHIER THAN OUR FOOD) INSTEAD THEY WANT TO HAVE BRITISH FOOD! - ITS LIKE FFS!!!!

THEN WHEN THE POLES COME OVER HERE AND YOU HAVE POLISH DELIS, POLISH FOOD BEERS,ETC IN OUR SUPER MARKETS - BRITS MAKE A BLOODY FUSS!! - HELLO! PEOPLE! WAKE UP! JUST LET IT BE - WEVE CONQUERED 2/3S OF THE WORLD JUST LET THEM BE MAN!

ARE POLISH PEOPLE TAKING OUR JOBS

I think Shelley's estimate is about right on what is spent, maybe even more...

Oh, I have a Polish/American boyfriend, who lived in Poland for quite some time....He hates them, bar the occasional few...he says they are arrogant, rude obnoxious, and think they are something when they are not...I have to say, since being with him and meeting them, the majority of them are just that. Some are lovely though.

And are they taking jobs, yea they are, but frankly they are jobs we don't want, and as people have rightly pointed out, they are jobs English can't live on, not because we want to keep up with the Jones', not because we are spoilt...But purely because WE CANNOT AFFORD TO LIVE decently if we do those jobs....Its our economy, and the ratio of earnings to living that make us need higher paid jobs....

And anyways, if people have such a problem with Brits and what we are like...Then I think you know what to do, the next plane or boat leaves in the next hour......

There were two Polish biatches who both had faces like bags of spanners in a restaurant the other night, making rude comments about everyone around them. The only thing you could say about them was that they were skinny.

Quite honestly we all have to just get on with it and do our best to get work in any part of EU.

I guess it all depends on who you want to believe. We have all read articles stating that either is true. The vast majority, be us British or Polish or all Ants! Pushing pens, brooms or buttons for the select few that have all the power.

To sit in hope that changes in immigration are going to improve your quality of life is idiotic, thats something you have to do for yourself.

Keen that really is not true, i talk from experience and i continue to see it day in and day out.
In the last 5 years i have worked for 2 companies and both of them have large numbers of polish workers (70% or more) when there were plenty of british workers that wanted a job.

But purely because WE CANNOT AFFORD TO LIVE decently

This is the problem - Brits feel that they deserve to live DECENTLY. The problem is that - why should anyone who didn't bother to educate themselves and who didn't bother to actually work towards anything deserve anything at all except a roof over their heads and food?

I find it bizzare that minimum wage workers DEMAND AND EXPECT plasma televisions, game consoles, foreign holidays, a nice car and so on.

Is that right? Oh okay.

I find it bizzare that minimum wage workers DEMAND AND EXPECT plasma televisions, game consoles, foreign holidays, a nice car and so on.

I dont recall anyone saying anything about the above, I was talking about people not worrying about being able to be pay the electric or gas bill...oh hang on you're going to suggest they sit in the dark and freeze in the winter! People being able to save a little bit so they can maybe afford a little luxury item every now and again, by that I mean a day out for the family...

I think you are confusing chavs off some council estate who have never worked, with hard working class people, who for what ever reason didn't have the opportunity to go to university. Men that work 60/70 hours a week for a very low wage, therefore dont have the time for further education because maybe, just maybe they want to spend a bit of time with their family when do have the time. They're not living 10 to a 2 bed flat and sending money home to pay for a cheap mortgage, they are paying over the odds for a house in the UK and working their bolloxs off to keep their heads above water.

You should really think about what you are writing, maybe you've been out of the UK for too long and are out of touch with the reality of it here.

You've actually hit the nail on the head there - the question of family. Should we really feel sorry for someone (given the availability of free contraception in the UK) who chose to have kids, even in the knowledge that they'd be unlikely to provide a decent life for them? I don't view having kids as a human right, they are essentially a luxury. If you need a big house to accomodate them, then you have to accept that you need to work for them.

But why are they working for a low wage to begin with? Most of the time, this is people who played the fool in the classroom and didn't bother showing up for their exams. You know, the popular kids who ended up in a backbreaking, physical job because they couldn't do anything else.

Let's be honest - if you compare the lifestyles of minimum wage workers in the UK as opposed to minimum wage workers in Poland, the Brits are living a life of luxury in comparison.

Part of the problem, of course, is that uneducated manual workers don't know how to look after their money wisely. They have Sky TV, they demand meat for every dinner, they won't consider buying own brand products 'coz it jus dusnt taste the same innit' and generally squander what money they have.

HELLO - NO ONE DESERVES TO LIVE IN THE DARK AGES!!! A PERSON WHO WORKS ON A MINIMUM WAGE DESERVES A BIT OF LUXURY BECAUSE WE WORK HARD FOR IT!! THE SCUM LIVING ON THE BENIFITS SUCH AS URE CHAVS,NEDS,PAEDOPHILLES,SEXOFFENDERS,ETC - THEY DONT DESERVE TO LIVE ON ANY KIND OF LUXURY PERIOD!!

I AGREE WITH YOU HEN!!:D - JUST LET MINIMUM WAGE DECENT HARD WORKERS EARN A BIT OF LUXURY - THEY WORKED HARD FOR IT!! GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO FREAKING BREATHE SO THAT WHEN THEYRE READY TO DO SO, THEY CAN BE ABLE EDUCATE THEMSELVES - THEY ARE LOTS OF INTELLEGENT BRITS OUT THERE WHO ARE CAPABLE OF EDUCATING THEMSELVES BUT DONT HAVE THE MEANS TO AFFORD IT!!

BRITAIN SHOULD COPY THE LIKES OF THESE SCANDANAVIAN COUNTRIES (I.E NORWAY) IN MANY WAYS - OK HIGHER TAXES ( NO ONE WANTS THAT ) HOWEVER THEY HAVE BETTER HEALTH CARE, BETTER STANDARD OF EDUCATION, BETTER LIVING,THEY DONT HAVE A MINIMUM WAGE AS SUCH, NORMALLY SOME ONE LIKE A BAR MAN FOR EXAMPLE EARNS OVER £13.50 PER HOUR!

FROM WHAT IVE HEARD FROM EX NORWEGIAN B.F AND HIS FRIENDS - ITS A RULE THERE THAT EVERYONE SHOULD WORK 2 WEEKS ON AND 2 WEEKS OFF AND STILL GET THEYRE MONTHLY WAGE! IN COMPARISION WITH THE UK - THEY DONT HAVE SO MUCH MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS! THEYRE HAPPIER THEYRE CRIME RATE IS FAR LOWER THAN HERE!

BRITS ARE CONSTANTLY ANGRY,KNARKY,STRESSED,CONSTANTLY WORRYING ABOUT STUPID THINGS ON WHAT TO DO NEXT WITH OUR LIVES? NOT ALL OF US HAVE THE LUXURY TO SIT BACK,RELAX TAKE SOME TIME OUT TO STUDY! WHAT I RECKON THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD DO IS INCREASE THE MINIMUM WAGE TO AROUND £8 OR MORE PER HOUR, TAKE A LEAF OUT OF NORWAYS BOOK BY GIVING WORKERS 2 WEEKS ON 2 WEEKS OFF EACH MONTH FOR EVERY WORKER UP AND DOWN THE LADDER SO THAT WE CAN SORT OF CALM DOWN A BIT! PUT MORE MONEY AND FUNDING INTO UNIVERSITIES,COLLEGES AND START PAYING STUDENTS THE EQUIVELANT TO WORKERS ON MINIMUM WAGE SO THEY CAN BE ABLE TO AFFORD THEYRE DIGS AND SO FORTH, NOT GIVE OUT STUPID LOANS AND BURSARIES!

WHEN THEY GRADUATE,GIVE THEM A BONUS SAY AN EXTRA 1000 POUNDS TO SAY CONGRATS AND AS TOKEN FOR THEM TO HELP GET THEM BACK ON THEIR FEET AND BACK INTO WORK!

IT WOULD BE A VERY ATTRACTIVE INCENTIVE AND IT WILL CERTAINLY ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO GET UP OFF THEIR ASSES FROM LIVING ON THE WELFARE.

PEOPLES GENERAL MENTAL HEALTH WILL BE A LOT BETTER, CRIME RATE WILL BE REDUCED BY OVER 50%! - IF BRITAIN CAN FOLLOW THIS EXAMPLE, OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE POLAND CAN DO THE SAME! -THEYRE WONT BE SO MUCH FUSS WITH ALL THIS BULL WE ARE SEEING TODAY:D

DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

ONE PART BRITISH CULTURE I HATE IS THAT EVERYONE IS SO BLOODY MISERABLE AND WHEN THERES LOTS OF PEOPLE WANTING CHANGE IN LIFESTYLE PEOPLE LIKE DELPH ( ASSUMING YOUR NOT BRITISH, BUT IF U ARE ONE, YOUR A GOOD EXAMPLE), THEY MAKE EVERYONES LIVES SO BLOODY CRAP AROUND THEM! - THEY GIVE IT ALL "THEY DONT DESERVE THIS THEY DONT DESERVE THAT - THEY SHOULD LIVE LIKE PAUPERS" NANANANNAANA - NO WONDER MOST OF US HIT THE DRINK,DRUGS,CRIME AND SPEND OUR HAPPY HOURS IN PSYCHO WARDS!

If you got a job as a waiter or bar tender you could make much more than that in tips every night. Everyone complaining here just get a job waiting tables or serving drinks. Sell pretty roses in clubs. You can make more than minimum wage that way.

That is such an old myth...trust me those are NOT the jobs that Polish people are doing here, I have said it before so sorry if I am repeating myself, but Polish workers in UK are electricians, dental receptionists, supermarket workers, insurance sales ppl, doctors, nurses, etc etc. It's time for this silly cliche of "Polish workers do jobs that Brits don't want" to be knocked on the head for good.

Oh and Polomintz nobody can read your posts.

Well delphiandomine, sorry for my late reply....However,

For your information, I have a very good job where I educated for it. I work in Insolvency, this is actually a very reputable job...Not just a job in call centre, or a "debt recovery" office, but I mean a top Insolvency Practitioner Firm.

Now based on that, I STILL do not live an exuberant life....I have a flat with a mortgage, i DO NOT have a plasma tv, DO NOT have a game console, and DO NOT have any of the other luxuries...Why, cos I don't want them, and I don't have money to buy them....Why don't I have money to buy them?? - Cos my money goes on bills...Just like Shelley has already told you.

I am a harding working citizen and like Shelley says, you are confusing chavs who have not done a days work in their life, to someone like I who has worked for every penny I have....and its still not enough to lead a DECENT life. I live from month to month, even on my GOOD wages.

So, in summary, if we want a decent life, then we can have it...We do have a right to that, and I do work hard for it. So quit being so obnoxious and catergorising everyone in the same boat as apparently what you believe to be "correct".

I am not a chav, and I am not a high flyer, but I am educated and STILL DO NOT lead a life of luxuries, even on money above the minimum wage.

It's alright for foreigners to come here and go on benefits though aint it....and support all their family here, and send our economy money back to their country to help family there....Why should us decent tax payers be paying for that?????? - In summary, if we didnt have all the scroungers (English and Foreign) us educated people would have more money to live on. Instead we have to fund them claiming benefits in OUR COUNTRY.

Sick and tired of political correctness....The Australian president got it right....If you don't like it, pack your bags and go back to your own country....It's our country and what we think and feel is our right, its our society, not yours.
