Banks target Polish workers
Major banks in the UK are starting to recruit Polish-speaking staff and specifically tailor products for Poles after identifying them as a "major growth area". Barclays, HSBC and Lloyds TSB are "attempting to improve life for Britain's Poles", who have traditionally faced a tricky task opening bank accounts to start them off in British financial life. - It's so nice to see the banks taking an interest in our new guests wellbeing and not as a new source of borrowers to increase their profits (and perhaps prop up the market ?). I'm sure lots of UK borrowers feel "indebted" to the banks for the way they have improved their lives also.
