Migrants face tighter work rules

Migrants face tighter work rules

Who is this latest con trick meant to appease ? Let's just ignore the fact that loads of UK based jobs have been "out-sourced" from these shores over the last 5 years ?

  • What tighter rules?

    If you read the satement; ‘From April, non-EU workers wanting to come to Britain without securing a job beforehand must have a master’s degree – rather than a bachelor’s degree, as currently – and a previous salary equivalent to at least £20,000.’ The key words are ‘without securing a job beforehand’ and a masters degree with a salary of at least £20K.

    Jacqui Smith (she can’t even spell her name correctly) even reckons that ‘”I am actually raising the bar,” so it looks like bad news our home grown debt saddled graduates then!

  • Absolutely. Here in the tax haven channel islands they have a system whereby companies can apply for a license to employ a non-local if they can prove they can’t find a suitable local. The non local enjoys all the priveleges of a local (i.e. they can buy local houses – if they did not have a licence they would have to buy or rent from a specific pool of open market houses that are available for anyone in the world… dodging tax). The end result is that the companies keep these requests for valuable and rare local licences for the most important jobs. In other words, non-locals that are allowed in are generally on much higher salries than your average local. This has lead to locals being priced out of the market and effectively becoming an underclass.

    Think of it this way – would you rather a) have immigrants only allowed to do cleaning, shoe polishing and all the other menial jobs you are too lazy to do yourself, b) have immigrants doing all of the high power, highly paid jobs, leaving you to do all the menial jobs, or c) no restrictions so that it is a free market in all areas and you get what you work for and deserve?
