Brits and Paddies are loosing the competition to the Polish even in the UK - on their own grounds. Do you think they could "undercut" anything in Poland? Don't think so.
Its not competition, Poles live a very different life-style whilst they are working over here...certainly not one that most if not all Brits would live - This is our home, not somewhere to go and work and then leave.
Its much easier to blame Polish workers.
If someone works for less than the minimum wage then they are the cause of the problem (they do this freely) - we didnt fight for workers rights for some foreigners to come in and undermine that..Thats sounds harsh but its true.
Work permit scheme
Is a perfect answer to the solution - where there is a need an employer would have to apply for these vacancies to be filled if there were no Brits to fill it.
The existing ones are quite good
Not for us they are not - this is clear as they seem to be being broken at every turn.
Does every ATM in Britain use English and Polish? In fact, before you withdraw 20 pounds from your ATM do you have to press 1 for English or 2 for Polish?
No, they give the option for French or German. At the new metro ticket machines, they give the option for English, French, German, Spanish and then Polish.
he is looking at it from the right perspective.
If an English person is turned down for a job because he doesnt speak Polish then its wrong, what other perspective is there to look at it from?
Look, I have no issue whatsoever with people of other nationalities coming to work in the UK, if they apply for a job and get the job based on education, skills and experience then they got the job in a fair manner, if they got the job in the UK based solely on the fact they were cheap labour then I do have an issue, because this has a damaging affect on our the indiginous people. I can post some links about how hard the Brits worked and fought for the rights of workers, if you like? These rights are being destroyed.
Its all about supply and demand, if the supply outstrips the demand then we have a problem and this is becoming a problem in the UK.
