- It is important that you cut and pasted them, since you don't really know anything about the article.
- For example, do you know if those 40% of Indians employed by Microsoft are actually in America? It employs thousands of factory programmers on the sub-continent because they are cheap. Factory programmers really aren't any more skilled than builders.
- I wont dirty Indian American achievement, they do very well for themselves. But claiming our loose immigration will automatically succeed in the same way is about as looney and irrelevant as damning African summer fruit pickers because Hussain gassed Kurds, Iran killed dissidents and the Turks massacred Armenians.
We're talking about a total government budget of around £600bn. The average contribution of a lower tax-bracket 4% of the population would be something like £12bn. £2.5bn is a pitiful amount, barely worth noticing, and is probably a negative contribution once education, paperwork and services are taken into account.
It's SURELY important to have it copied & paste (wonders of Technology)
but then again, it's a rather crass comment suggesting I'm ignorant about what's been mentioned, as your pea-sized intellect have already proved you, quite as bright as an eclipse, I fear, since I was mentioning the BENEFITS of having ethnic minorities, while you preferred whining about needlessly
Let me enlighten you with the fact, which you've kept yourself well aloof from, that majorities of these 40% of employees within Microsoft has had their brain developed in India & entered in USA through the skills they had to offer, by work permit & are NOT American Born Indian
Furthremore, most of Microsoft's factory job of packing, etc. is based in USA & Mexico & NOT outsourced to India
Hordes of Britons, French & Germans move to Middle East, to earn BETTER salary as compared to what they could earn by being in UK & in the same way, Indians have done exactly the same by moving to USA, for better salary. Similary, British doctors & nurses prefer moving to USA & Australia, for better working condition & decent salary, as opposed to what they get offered within the country & Indians have done the same. It happens all around the world & I can't see anything wrong with it, so MAY BE, you should stop pointing your fingers to JUST ONE PARTICULAR ethnic group, for doing so
Immigration is still a problem, but then again, which country has kept itself aloof from problem ??? Hope you are not living in a cloud-cuckoo-land ???
Wonder when was the last time, you had visit of your local Optician ??? Cos the site, I provided you earlier & you failed to notice it stating VERY CLEARLY that just within the city of London (JUST LONDON) has ethnic minorities contribution towards economy is £31.2 billon & EVEN if you take away the benefits, healthcare, pensions, etc., which works out £28.8 billion, it STILL leaves with a overall benefit of £2.5 billion. Now, you do the Maths (depending on you GCSE grade) as this £2.5 billion is just for 1999/2000 year with JUST from the city of London. Imagine the overall contribution from the ethnic minorities contribution, all around the country & times it by the number of years, they've been doing so & will CONTINUE to do so
Indeed, immigration has it's minus points (for which, government is THERE to think about, rather than you needlessly stressing your brain cells, over the entire issue) but then again, it's NOT always a bowl of cherries (if that's what you think, it should be)
Nuff said !!!
