why so many foreigners from America, the U.K., France, etc. come here and take high level positions
Because we Poles (especially the older generation), suffer very often from an inferiority
complex, which makes us think that we couldn't train our own men to do the same jobs
foreigners are doing - of course we could and with time we will. When the post-communist
generation passes away, we will be free of this nonsensical inferiority complex and it will
be the end of golden days for foreigners in Poland earning ridiculous amounts of money.
"any Pole could do what those guys are doing"
Nobody said that "any Pole" could do those jobs (but some certainly could).
these foreigners are a waste of money
That was said in reference to some native speakers, working as English language
teachers, who are completely incompetent when it comes to teaching phonetics
and phonology of the language and very often don't have any pedagogical preparation.
They are in most cases grossly
If we got rid of every single foreigner from Poland today (I'm not saying we should,
not at all - they're, by and large, decent folks) life would just go on as it was before.
We would easily find or train Polish replacements for them - no bother at all.
Many foreigners find a place to live in Poland and jobs to support them and their
families. It is quite strange and quite sad how they see fit to moan like bit**es
at every inconvenience they encounter and criticize every thing that they don't find
good enough for them.
Hey - folks, if you don't like it so much then, by all means, do leave - we wouldreally
hate to keep you here against your will. That would be inappropriate
behaviour on our part.
