I’m no PR person, but saying the largest population group is lazy is not great publicity.

there is some truth in it... different cultures promote different work ethics, and the british work-ethic is not as productive on average then some other cultures work-ethics.

Obviously though, generalising from this and refusing to hire people based on a generalisation is racist and wrong. Especially as there will be some areas where british-culture leads to employees being better then other cultures.

Its just a good general principle to be sensible with any cultural difference and say "yes, not all cultures are equal in all ways... but no, I won't treat anyone differently, because our culture doesn't define us as individuals"

in other words - accept that averages exist, but don't let averages impact how you treat individuals

And yet the ultra-progressives would be happy to give him a free pass, they don't care about the damage that sweeping generalisations do, they just want to promote the narrative that allows them to troll Brits: "Your country's being propped up by foreigners because you're too lazy/picky"

Work ethic in Britain is pretty bad as a result of socialism which has made the population mostly lazy and decadent.

The thing is, people who cross the continent to make a bit of cash to send home to their families probably do have a better work ethic than the average unskilled Brit.

The cafe owners are clearly operating illegally. They don't allow their staff to take sick days (they later added 'without a sick note' but really, they're the kind to severely pressure employees not to, and sick notes are only legally requied after 7 days of sickness). They dock wages from previous shifts, something illegal under labour law.

Seems like they're inferior bosses.

Well they're certainly less likely to know much about employment law here which sounds like a major bonus for this employer.

When people get off their ass and travel to this country to improve themselves they tend to have a better work ethic than many of the people that stay behind as well as low qualified Brits. Earning two or three times the amount you did back home for a similar job tends to do that.

Brits that move to Australia, Canada and the US tend to have a better work ethic than low qualified Australians, Canadians and Yanks.

Looks like Mike Ashley and Philip Green face some stiff competition for the title of Britain's most reviled business owner.
Despised by employees, job applicants, customers, the TUC and likely half the activists groups in England.
Lawyers and PR agencies will adore him.

To refuse someone a job based on nationality rather than merit is wrong no matter what way you look at it. This company if found guilty of such practice should be fined into the ground.

Liberals: “It’s a private company, they can run it however they see fit”

Also Liberals: “A bakery refuses to make a cake for a gay couple, they should be destroyed! Reeeeeeee!”

You do realize that the opposite charge of hypocrisy can be directed at many conservatives?

I think it’s wrong for private entities to refuse to serve or host certain people on the basis of their political beliefs or sexual orientation, but I acknowledge their right to do so.

However, refusing to employ someone on the grounds of their nationality, race or sexual orientation should be illegal.

What is the difference between the two instances, in your view?

It is true though, British people are lazy in taxing jobs involving manual labour... (trigger warning) many immigrants often work much harder than their British counterparts so can be expected...
