What’s wrong with training the 1,000’s in the UK can’t get jobs?

David Cameron hints at relaxation of immigration cap

Immigration is essentially an attempt - lobbied by UK business leaders - to keep UK wages down. That's what it is really all about....

  • one thing the governments and banks forget is the majority of people are employed by small businesses, these are the businesses that need the skilled workers sometimes from abroad, yet these are the companies who face the most hassle with visa applications, much the same way in the USA

  • Ralph Mugrave says:

    I particularly liked this excerpt from a recent Financial Times article:

    “European politicians would simply be irresponsible to press ahead with negotiations to bring Turkey into the European Union without addressing the issue of immigration. In the long run, they will not do it. In the short run, they take refuge in double-talk and hypocrisy.

    On his recent trip to Ankara, Mr Cameron carefully positioned himself as a champion of Turkish membership of the EU, claiming that he was “angry” that Turkey was being so badly treated. The very next day, Mr Cameron re-iterated his determination that the number of immigrants coming into Britain should be sharply reduced. Logically, he cannot have it both ways.”

  • What’s the point of an immigration cap when that only applies to the small number of people coming from outside the Eurozone ?

    There’s nothing stopping them flooding in from Europe.

  • UK wages are too high. If you can find the skills, aptitude and eagerness from abroad you employ them.

    You’re very right Mark visa app’s are a right pain for getting into the UK. My only gripe is the poor language ability of people seeking employment here. If you go to any country you should expect to conform and speak that country’s language.

    So true, to support a family and buy a reasonable house (read 2/3 bed semi with parking). You need to earn at least £55k per year taking into account student loan repayments.

    The older guys where I work could afford all of this on there salary which included a pension. Now we get no pension and can’t afford a crappy old victorian terrace with on street parking & that is with 2 working.

    Of course British people want more money, and they should get it. I work with 1 other British person out of 7 of us, they all intent to get rich quick then head back home with the cash. Sharing 6 to a house & no family ties.

  • 10 Driving Lessons for £100 in Bury courtesy of Asian driving instructors and the benefits system.

    Work just enough hours to drive around in a new car and keep all your benefits, the same system the taxi drivers use!

    Spells bankruptcy for many other non-benefit dependant instructors.

  • Driving lessons are mostly cash in hand when you see 10 for £100, mine were £20 per hour back in 1998
