More chance of a job in Poland

Poland allows prisoners out to fill jobs left vacant by the rush to Britain

The Polish government is allowing prisoners to work outside jail as the country struggles to fill vacancies left by mass migration to Britain. More than 1.12 million Poles have gone west, the majority to Britain, since the country joined the European Union in May 2004.

  • Which makes you wonder how long it will be before some of those who have emigarated here decide they would be better off at home, given that there is presumably now upward pressure on wages in Poland.

  • I think perhaps I’ll sell my house and move to Poland. Buy a mansion and get a job.

  • Can see absolutely no relation between this article and a house price crash?

    Right wing propaganda from the Torygraph.

    Getting prisoners out to work sounds like a good plan, but don’t see how the 12 gangs are going replace the 1.2 million people.

  • Miniftse…
    What is the connection? To some extent, the idea of anyone else coming here is a threat in that there simply are no homes available for those already in the UK. That is one connection. Our own family with substantial bank accounts and extremely strong family ties and support in the UK were warned on emigrating some years ago that houses were expensive and in high demand and we would have problems. Clear enough and everyone should be told the same.

    Beyond that, there does appear to be a “jingoist” strain through the media here, preparing the poor “Englishman” to be entirely disenfranchised at a moment’s notice as a scare tactic that shatters any logical thought process. As Markd as said, most of the Polish will probably go home eventually because they love their own country and people. My own experience of Poles is that they were thrilled to enter the EU, and anxious to level the playing field with developed nations of Europe, but they love Poland and want to improve life there.

    There seems to me in general a great diversion of discussion among those purporting to be concerned with economics. Within the so-called economic conversation, the paranoid “blame game” is well in force and drowns out most sensible language and thought. If it’s not America’s fault, then its the “Muslims” and if that doesn’t work, we’ll get mad at the Poles, or how about the Romanians? Meanwhile the UK flounders and slides ever further toward the drain. How about a sensible, well thought out policy decision here and there? How about joining the twenty-first century and considering the advantages of diversity? Skilled Brits don’t want to live here anymore because of the incessant nastiness, bureaucracy and lousy decision-making record. What about fixing THAT?

    And in respect to sensible policy — the reality to me is that the UK does need to establish a policy of how many it can accomodate — whether permanently or temporarily — taking into consideration the financial uncertainties for everyone here, from children to OAPs. Many other countries have done it and not been thought exclusive nor anti-immigrant — why not the UK? Don’t allow anyone to lower the discussion to a level of racism and jingoism mates, and we will do this country a great favour.
