CAMERON STATES EASTERN EUROPEANS FIND WORK EASILY DUE TO DIFFERENT WORK ETHICS – Did the Prime Minister just have the audacity to call the British worker lazy and inept?
Is Mr. Cameron suggesting that Eastern Europeans are finding work easier due to their ‘can-do’ attitude and in fact will take any type of work; providing it is paid work?
You bet he did and Mr. Cameron is spot on with his assessment. I can only conclude that Mr. Cameron has had a chat with someone who isn’t delusional about the state of Britain, its economy and more importantly the public’s perception that they are ‘entitled’ to welfare.
Maybe, just maybe he’s read a few articles on meebal.com and finally come to the conclusion that Britain is broken due to our dependency or rather ‘entitlement’ to scrounging.
According to Mr. Cameron we shouldn’t be giving up jobs to migrants just because our youth are not up to the job – or rather feel it’s beneath them.
What we need, Mr. Cameron states, is better training and more opportunity so that our youth can hold down a job.
Mr. Cameron noted that nearly half of all factory jobs in Britain were taken up with immigrants; mostly from Eastern European countries and that the situation desperately needs changing around.
Consider this before you start waving the Union Jack and declaring a nationalist movement. For starters Eastern Europeans come from a place where democracy is a word used in passing. They are also subjected to almost no welfare and what is available wouldn’t feed the average family for a day in the UK.
Whilst there is plenty of news surrounding the Eastern European criminals, people need to realise that there are a vast number of others that do in fact work, work extremely hard and pay taxes – it’s more than we can say for the millions of British unemployed who appear happy to sit on the dole receiving a handout.
Maybe it’s time we turned the tables and started to move the unemployed to Romania or Bulgaria. This could be seen as ‘training’ and certainly it would be a ‘life-experience’; that is seeing how the poor really live and in doing so instill a little drive and responsibility to make a difference.
Romanians and Bulgarians really don’t have the ethic of welfare ‘entitlement’; although in some quarters this is beginning to grow – yes, they have learned directly from the British of how to sit and do nothing and expect to get paid for it; some role model we turned out to be for Europeans and I’m surprised someone hasn’t attempted to brand it, label it and sell it as ‘Entitlement Britain; How to Rape the Taxpayer’.
There’s a slight flaw in Mr. Cameron’s perception; that is he feels that the British youth needs more training to gain skills and qualification and I have to wonder how many Eastern Europeans are suitably well qualified.
It’s likely they are not, but they do have the willingness to learn ‘on-the-job’ and learn fast in order to earn a pay packet; which appears to be the opposite of the British youth.
Mr. Cameron did point out that he didn’t blame Eastern Europeans from wanting to work or employers for giving them jobs – after all an employer only wants those willing and able and if they can’t find it within the nation’s workforce then they will look outside.
I also have to disagree with Mr. Cameron’s assessment that the British youth are being failed by the education system; that is he feels that school-leavers are ill-equipped. Yes, it’s easy to blame someone else, this time the teachers, but the truth is our schools are over-crowded, mostly with immigrants.
We also have a culture of ‘education’ being the key to success, whereas many now feel those ‘degrees’ are almost worthless due to saturation of the market – that is far too many people are leaving higher education with degrees which effectively devalues the education; it’s one of the reasons why it is not uncommon to see graduates standing behind a McDonald’s counter asking customers ‘Do you want fries with that?’
On that note, I fully agree with Mr. Cameron’s statement that the system does not provide an incentive to work; again that comes down to our perception of ‘entitlement’ to welfare – why get paid for working when you can get paid for doing nothing?
The stark reality is that there wouldn’t be many Eastern Europeans working in Britain if the unemployed go off their lazy backsides.
Look closely at the Eastern Europeans and you’ll quickly discover that most will take up any kind of work, even shoveling horse manure, providing it produced a pay packet.
Mr. Cameron announced during his party conference speech that he would introduce the ‘Earn or Learn’ scheme, whereby those on unemployment benefits would have a choice; either work for the community to earn unemployment benefit or go back into education.
The issue here is that forcing people into education will only increase the cost to the taxpayer; with few tangible benefits. On the other hand the ‘Earn’ part is tangible in that our streets could be cleaner, safer and more organised if we put them to work.
Yes, the ‘Earn or Learn’ scheme has come under fire from left-wing progressives who feel this is little more than state forced labour; it appears that it’s fine to waste taxpayer’s money on those who simply cannot be bothered to get out of bed in the mornings.
Frankly, I have little or no time for benefits scroungers. I work 14 hours a day for less than £200 a month and I’m supported by my partner. Neither of us takes anything from the welfare system for we feel that work is the only ethical decision and that the taxpayer has enough of a burden without us adding to the problem.
Yes, living on a meager sum is sometimes difficult and one day we hope that our hard work will pay dividends.
The attitude is one of a ‘can-do’ and for me failure is the result of never trying to make things better. We all have a choice but if that choice means sitting around all day then why should others, the taxpayer, be forced to support that choice?
