EU BRIBING BRITISH FIRMS WITH CASH TO EMPLOY FOREIGNERS – British employers can receive nearly £900 in cash from the EU for every foreigner they employ from mainland Europe leaving British workers finding it more difficult to secure gainful employment.
Yesterday I wrote an article on the issue of foreigners taking some 55 per cent of all job vacancies available in the UK.
The Minister for Business and Education, Matthew Hancock stated that he wants firms to do more for British nationals; including providing on-the-job training to help build a better and more skilled workforce.
The truth is that many foreign workers are highly skilled and therefore it is not only an easier option for British firms to employ them it is also highly lucrative with the ‘bribes’ the EU offers.
There are also incentives for foreigner workers as they too are offered up to £1,100 to take jobs in Britain under the EU scheme.
It would appear that the British worker is not only just competing with higher skill levels but also on an incentive level. The only way it appears possible to complete is to firstly become more skilled and secondly to bribe an interviewer with cash to secure the job. Has Britain finally lost all sense of morality and more importantly its sanity?
There is a growing divide in Britain to its the population; that much we do know. As Britain becomes ever divided into race related social groups the tensions are also growing.
It appears that the ideology of a multicultural cohesive society is not what the EU wants but rather to allow Britain to be swallowed up from the hordes of EU nationals and as a result destroy Britain’s national identity.
But are we being a little too cynical here? There are not many people who feel that mass immigration, as devised by Tony Blair and the last Labour Government, is beneficial to the UK.
However it is widely acknowledged that the UK is becoming an ‘aged’ society and in order to continue caring for an aging population we must bring in people who can provide support through taxation.
Some argue that the British youth simply do not have the will or desire to succeed. The consensus from some quarters is that the British youth have it too easy with the welfare state and there is little or no real incentive to learn a trade and secure gainful employment.
I personally disagree that the EU should provide British firms or skilled workers outside of the UK with incentives for employment. However, I do feel that we need to attract more skilled migrant workers in order to help the economy recover.
Going back to yesterday’s article this EU scheme, or bribery as some have called it, really does go against the grain of what the Government is trying to achieve by persuading British firms to take on and train more British nationals.
Britain has for decades provided work related training schemes and continues to do so and yet despite their efforts the youth appear unemployable through their lack of skills. I wonder how this reflects on Britain from an outside prospective; that is our youth are given so many opportunities and yet squander or even throw it back in our faces.
The Minister for Business and Education Minister, Matthew Hancock yesterday accused British firms of taking the ‘easy option’ but I wonder if he has stopped to think as to whether the option is right ‘commercially’. After all it is the responsibility of company owners to employ the best workers it can in order to boost productivity and profits; that ultimately generation taxes.
Again I don’t agree with the EU incentives but from a business standpoint I would much rather employ a person with a high-skill set who benefits the business rather than a lazy lay about who feels some sort of entitlement to a job because he or she is a British citizen.
What Britain needs to do is to get off its backside and learn new skills. Hanging around with friends, drinking, taking drugs and engaging in criminal activities, as is so apparent with youth today, is not the answer to a prosperous future for Britain.
Nigel Farage, leader of UKIP, yesterday gave a statement to the press acknowledging that what the EU was doing is ‘utterly reprehensible’ considering nearly one million young people are unemployed in the UK.
Nigel of course is completely correct; the EU should not be providing any incentives as this goes against the ideology of a free market economy where healthy competition is allowed to control the market. What the EU is doing is creating a monopoly through such a scheme and yes it is nothing less than open bribery.
According to some reports there are currently 800,000 available jobs in the UK being advertised through this scheme which equates to more than half across all of Europe.
Yet again the EU is sending a clear message to the citizens of Britain in that it will continue to manipulate our landscape for its own ideology. This is yet another example of why we need to pull out of the EU before we let it destroy the little we have left.
Whilst pulling out of the EU is looking more and more like the only solution the British public must be aware; and this is in particular to our youth, that if Britain is to survive then its citizens must, at all cost, become more skilled and highly productive.
Britain was once the world’s hub of innovation and dedication; it’s time we took a long hard look in the mirror and decide upon the future of this once great country of ours.
Do you think the British youth are just too lazy to compete with foreign workers? Do you think the EU scheme is an under-handed one? Please leave your comments below.
