No but the government shouldn't allow this situation! A govts reason d'etre is to act in the bests interests of it's people. Having hoards of cheap labour flooding into the jobs market is not good for the British workforce!
This is just the result of PC brainwashing to leap to the defence of immigrants regadless of the facts and go into attack mode to anyone raising these valid FACTS.
You're missing the bigger picture and this statement is wanton naivety. It may suit employers to offer employment to the cheapest/long term applicant but that isn't necessarily good for society as a whole in the longterm. Not difficult to grasp is it.
It isn't cheap, the minimum wage is there for a reason. You won't change your mind on this subject, any person who wants to work hard and pay tax should live in this country. Your idea that the 'native' population has a brith right priveledge to a job is an out dated and supremacist view.
Exactly! I was just talking to my mate about this issue. I was like whats the point of living in this country if you not going to work. Are you going to stay at home and doss around. Also it's this country, why let people in who just going to claim benefits. I want to work but can't find a part-time job.
The Father? Or perhaps yes. Were the kids born here?
I'll let you look up the process on the Home Office website, it's quite clear. (Also very stringent, though easier for EU citizens than non-EU citizens, for whom it's almost impossible)
Or of course they're illegal immigrants, stealing the taxpayers monies. (They can't, both because illegal immigrants can't get benefits because they don't have an NI number, and because immigration from the EU is legal without a visa. But hey, have to offer you a bigoted argument to seize on)

They are trying to do that, if immigrants dont earn above 35k they will told to leave the country, thus highly skilled workers are allowed in. Dont when this will come into effect though.

While they do no doubt contest for jobs, many of the jobs they do because UK citizens dont want to do them. They would rather sit at home than earn minimum wage, so what do you expect to happen? Someone else does the job and the guy sat at home complains about it.
Lol at the negs. From people currently unemployed maybe?
I know where there are loads of jobs. Thousands of Eastern Europeans work in the fields of Lincolnshire, Norfolk etc picking fruit and vegetables for minimum wage. Most employers would rather use hard working local guys, but they dont exist. They either wont work, or wont work very hard. At least if you employ a Polac then they work hard, and if they dont then there are 10 more wanting the jobs. They live very cheaply and send money back home for their families.
Average 21 year old without a job in the UK would rather be on the dole than do that work. Dont believe me, go try and see how long you last.
