    Eastern Block Immigrants

    Post by hughh on Sun 18 Aug 2013, 10:18 am

    I will put my hand up now I was against them coming and taking jobs off our youth. The trouble is employers need them because many of our young people are just unfit and unable to do an hard days work, or just don't want to get their hands dirty.

    While that IS true Hughh, I think that the major problem here is that immigrants - especially from ex Eastern-bloc countries - are willing to work for less than the statutory minimum wage, and this means that because the employers are not vetted well enough by the employment watchdogs there are a lot of jobs being filled by these virtual slave workers.

    In other words the fault does not lie with the immigrant population, it lies with the greedy employers and the useless government that is suposed to enforce the minimum wage.

    What you have said is almost word for word what I honestly believed. It was an employer on a site in London who said he set on British workers and they stay for a couple of weeks before clearing off. Workers from Bulgaria will work 7 days a week and work hard and never let you down. If he just employed cheap labour under the minimum wage he wouldn't have been so out spoken on a BBC news channel.
    I know from experience that eastern block lads are very hard workers. A bunch them have set up an hand wash car cleaning service. They do an excellent job at a very fair price.

    And yet they get badly stereotyped by some Brits as being feckless, lazy, and only here for the beer and the benefits, when actually, the great majority of them are here to work hard, earn as much as they can and send a lot of that money back home.

    You have already answered that question yourself when you said that many Immigrants will do work that the ordinary Brits find below them or too menial to do.

    And, while the fact that they will also work for less than the minimum wage is a negative point, it means that they will always find work while the rest of the choosy Brits won't.

    From an employers point of view that is a great thing, as these folks will not complain when they get less than they should get for a wage and there are now thousands of such immigrants that are undermining the minimum wage standards by doing this.

    I cannot really blame them if they are willing to do this as they are only doing what they have to do to survive while the greedy employers are feeding off their desperation.

    Not until the minimum wage is properly enforced will this practice ever stop.

    But do they take on work below the set minimum wage that is the question.

    Yes they do, as it has been reported in many places that they do.

    HERE is a link to the Daily Mirror that highlights this and shows that the government know it is going on.

    In fact many criminal enterprises smuggle illegal immigrants into Britain so that they can be abused by working in slave-labour jobs or even in the sex trade.

    The Chinese, Pakistani and Indian immigrant populations in particular are rife with people that have been brought here illegally and specifically to work for restaurant-owners for very low wages.
