We have been neglecting to train decent tradespeople in this country for years.

Companies say they can't afford to do it, so used to get cheaper labour from abroad.

Government schemes are totally inadequate in comparison, and are often age limited, so not offered to many unemployed.

 

Parents seem to want all their children to go to University in spite of the cost, rather than learn a trade, although a decent plumber, electrician etc can earn good money - often more than a graduate for whom there are not enough well paid jobs.

 

English snobbery at it's finest.

Why can't prisoners be given training,  what do they do all day?

The UK business model has always been broken with sticking plaster immigrants the answer according to those broken businesses who fail to invest in and train willing British youngsters.

Even the NHS has been at it from the start. You dont see a careers office in town like the Armed Forces.

Training for our youngsters who aren't going to Uni should start in Year 10 or 11.

No it is not .

Before we had foreign workers we taught apprentices in these skills and there was no need to import workers.

Stop trying to blame Brexit for everything and look at the facts.

Whether you have that view or not this has nothing to do with Brexit, if it had been carried out properly the flow of cheap labour would have stopped and initiatives to encourage school leavers to earn trades would have happened, it's just an easy get out clause for the hard of thinking. The shortage of skilled workers in construction started long before leaving the EU was a reality.

I love how people who are happy for European workers to be exploited for low pay think they're the ones being morally superior.
