Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:


    So, IT types from India - no longer allowed to cut-in with £200 a day to do job a Brit would do for £500 a day.

    Philipino cleaners - no demand by care-home owners to pay £8.80 an hour. So they'll need to go local. So the long-term unemployed will have more available work. Is that correct?

    We'll still have competition from Saffers, Aussies and Kiwis (with most of whom I thoroughly enjoy working) but as a rule they don't undercut the idigenious pop.

    Good stuff say I!

    Edited to add:

    After reading the article again, it's clear that's it's just an Advisory Ctte. so not definite to go on the books.
  2. Hands up all those who honestly believe UK employers will keep the same staffing levels when paying more per pax? In other words, that the UK employee will be receiving their pay for the same days work?

    It might just be fine if you're an IT professional or some other on a decent wage as there's a reason employers are prepared to pay that wage. The poorest of those in employment won't suddenly find themselves surrounded by eager Brits who've leaped at the chance to work after all these years - they'll just have to work even longer hours with fewer staff or take an effective pay cut.
  3. And the rest of the EU.....
