A view from over the pond

Recommended Posts

Not a meteor but more of a bombshell, the famous petition for another referendum has been thrown into disarray by the discovery that at least 80,000 votes on it are fake, with, for instance, 39,000 coming from Vatican City, population 800.

Oh, what a to-do!

 

how do you know which sides supporters are adding fake signatures?

Not "lying" at all, just correcting your lies.   8)

 

Nope, you are lying.  It is your way, lie, get found out , talk crap for four days solid and hope everyone gets bored.  Who predicted an asteroid strike?  Who started the petition?  Where is the £350 million a week going to go?  Will immigration stop?  lie upon lie upon lie.

Did we really?

 

Does that chime with your experience, Milky?

 

Yes, zero contract is a new term. When I did contract work  it was mostly cover for holidays, sickness, busy periods like Christmas or temp contracts while warehouse was being commissioned for example. I never heard of companies whose majority of staff were on temp working as seems the case with zero hours.

 

I recall the then new EU laws coming into force in the Uk and it was not the case of everyone getting extra benefits, what happened was the agency would take a percentage of your earnings and put them towards holiday pay. I recall at the time I was working in an office in Manchester on a temp stock control contract.

 

I presume people on zero contract are considered self employed, does anyone know?

Thanks Milky.

 

So, just to be clear, the time when you were doing this concided with the time "when the flood of low skilled, non English speaking migrants started arriving".

 

2003/4 ish?

I shouldn't think a zero hours contract would enable anybody to get a mortgage so they may well be hampering people who would love to buy their own homes.

Thanks again.

 

So do you remember that period of your life as a time when you were jostling for more hours against a flood of low skilled, non English speaking migrants?

 

Or, were/are you one of that number yourself?

How is that even possible when you have to put in a UK postcode to sign it?  Could this just be another falsehood from the Leave liars?

According to BBC TV News 77,000 false signatures have already been wiped off and counting. But the idea that we can have a best of three, tells us everything about the juvenile psyche of a generation.      8)

No, I was mostly doing stock control, project management, load planning and there was no real competition  from cheap labour. I occasionally drove HGVs for Tesco, Sainsbury, Coop but I never met one single Polish (or any other east European)  HGV driver in these companies.

 

A few years ago Car Phone Warehouse had a huge recruitment campaign to recruit Polish people for their sales and call center staff, end of the process just one person started work. Similarly I recall Cheshire Police trying to recruit Polish Police officers, I do not know if any did start work for them

 

Problem is that these that are well qualified and have good English can get well paid jobs in Poland, coupled to lower living costs in Poland it is not that attractive to move here if have good qualifications, apart for experience. My Polish neighbour's recently went back to Poland, he is a Doctor, his wife a IT specialist after living here for seven years.

 

Poland has recently introduced or are introducing a minimum wage of 12zl per hour (about £2.30, depending on the exchange rate), in order try and encourage workers back to Poland.
