Sadly no its not. Fact is there is very little work in the UK at the minute. Its especially harder when most of the jobs that are out their get filled by eastern europeans who arent subject to the minimum wage like the rest of us. This raises some very interesting questions in my mind, especially in the electrical and construction industry where its affected the most. To become an electrician in the UK aint an easy feat. First you need the 2330 level 2 and 3, then you need 2382 17th edition, then the 2356 nvq level 3, then the 2391 and 2392 inspection and testing. Then you need a ECS card and a CSCS card to prove your competent and safe. Now then compare that to what someone who comes over here to work claiming to be an electrician. A simple 6 month course, thats it. Whereas it takes us 4 years to get everything we need. You see i dont subscribe to the notion that people keep spewing out which is they do all the jobs that people here dont wanna do. What a load of old cobblers. People who say that need to go take a long hard look in their local jobcentre occasionally. When we are constantly undercut because foriegn workers get paid less wheres the fairness to the people who actually live here? And another thing the governmennt either need to put up or shut up in my opinion because they have blatantly lied. Massive example, anyone remember the british jobs for british workers for the olympic park in stratford? Yeah, i live 10 miles away from it, 85% of the people working their are polish and romanian. So i ask you, is this sort of migration a good thing?
