But we should blame super employement agencies
Always someone else and not the Pole at fault... Lack of responsibility lies with both parties.
simply offering them employement on ongoing contracts without any right.
Yep and they offer these to British people now - flooding
the labour market on an Island has created a lot of problems that have filtered down to the indiginous population, we have gone backwards since our boarders were opened.
Those agencies slowly act the same way against English citizens. It makes a mess on you job market. I've always thought that everybody should work for company and should be a little secured about his future.
See my comments above.
It's with those who are already in UK and refuse to learn
Why bother when your mates are Polish, you can go to a Polish shop and watch Polish TV and your employer couldnt care less as long he gets his 8 hours a day out of you for minimum wage on a contract that isnt worth the paper its written on.
English tests are good idea but there should be also agreement for other certificates than only made in England if those certificates are from most known educational bodies like Cambrige certificates or Oxford...We can do them also abroad in other countries than the UK is and they use the same tests and everything to issue this certificates for you. There should be two groups of tests for new visistors. One for people without language certificates and other just to test the real language lever for those whose have got one.
The reason they acknowledge Cambridge is because it's regulated, if we start to recognise every Tom Dick and Harry we will have a problem we are trying to erradicate in the UK which is bogus colleges with bogus certificates. There should be a standard short written exam up on entry to the UK along with verbal test, these should be paid for by the person coming in, Im not talking about £100s of £'s a fee of £20 would be fine, I couldnt care less what certificate you have, if you cant read or write or speak it doesnt matter what a piece of paper says.
I also feel that if a person needs an interpreter, they should pay for this themselves, I think this is standard in Poland? I actuallly think thats right too, why should people expect their host country to pander to their needs if they cant be bothered to learn the language then they should pay for assistance.
