Ordinary people should know their place!

Subsequent governments allow immigration to keep wages low. The rich benefit from a low paid work force and less jobs means no wage increases and no strikes for fear of losing jobs.

 

Shushhhh Dont tell anybody. Most people think the migrant workers 'just appeared' as if from nowhere. British companies started recruiting in Poland, Latvia, Slovakia etc, even arranging transport and finding accomodation for them. I remember this going on as early as 2004 by blue chip companys such as M+S and Next. The migrants were put to work in warehousing and distribution. It was a carefully planned operation. It has resulted in increased profits for the companys concerned BUT the huge numbers of migrants has overloaded our infrastructure. The taxpayer is now picking up the tab.

Now we have low paid British workers, 'nowt in their pockets. We have migrants sending money 'home' to family, hence the High Street shops are struggling.......................and the government dosent know which way to turn. We are not heading for inflation but DEFLATION.........and that would be catastrophic.

Get it sorted Mr Cameron, thats what WE pay YOU for.

Or perhaps he realises the Nu Labour policy of turning carpetworld into a uni and demanding 50% of people go to "university" has failed and that lots of "graduates" under labours regime are under qualified to stack shelves?

 

But it was the tories who converted polys into unis in 90/91 knowing full-well the courses they'd offer would unlikely to be not much good and knowing the conversion would be financially unviable to the government. It must have come as a real shock when the Grey Man finally won the election for the tories after being the unelected PM for so long.

The pen museum like other museums would have offered the opportunity to gain skills in customer service, community/schools involvement, giving talks, giving tours, front desk/reception work, perhaps retail too if there was a museum shop, an opportunity to input into the museum's web presence, an insight into how museums are managed, maybe the 'opportunity' to help out with some of the more menial tasks. All this in a small intimate museum where it is much easier to get a broad overview of how the place generally runs.

Excellent training for a geologist isn't it?

IDS and his Tory chums want to live in the real world, the 1700+ people who applied for 8 jobs at Costa and starting on £6.10 an hour show that not all unemployed people (as the Tories seem to think) are shirkers.

 

Were all the applicants unemployed?

I have no idea but would imagine the majority were, cannot see many people looking to change to a job for £6.10 ph

It's excellent training if that geologist wants to work in a museum.

 

It's pretty poor training if that geologist wants to get into oil exploration.

 

Its funny but many museums have been built over oil wells.The geologist could spend their lunch hour in the basement digging a trial trench.

Was there suitable work experience available for a geology graduate or graduate in any subject ?

A question must be asked whether we are producing graduates in sujects which will lead to employment, or in a suitable ratio to demand.

The country has an obvious skills shortage in certain areas evidenced by suitably qualified people from abroad filling them. Why aren't we guiding our prospective students into subject areas, with incentives if necessary, which will lead to careers in areas where we have skill shortages and benefit the country ?

Prospective students need to be made aware of the employment prospects relative to specific degrees.

I appreciate many graduates state that the university experience,regardless of subject read, is valuable in their development and realise how dispiriting it must be when faced with few prospects of employment after working hard.

Regarding the specific topic of the young woman's work experience shelf stacking I fail to see how she could be paid wages by any employer whilst claiming JSA
