If you get more money in total on benefits why would you break your back
picking veg in a field with zero prospects? I wouldn't, would you?

You'd better get out of the potato field you purport to inhabit then.

Well for a start your career doesn't take you anywhere, you choose to go.

You need to be able to go.

No you don't. If you don't want to be moved abroad don't take a job that
might require it. And if you take a job where relocation is not in the contract
and they change their minds then you refer them to your contract and refuse to

What are you on about? If you wish to advance your career by taking a
new job overseas you have to be "able to" - ie at a most basic level get
a work permit.

Secondly there are plenty of highly qualified people in this country looking
for work.

There's a huge skills shortage for highly qualified telecoms engineers.

Oh really? As you like to say, citation required.

Most of the citations are about general IT technicians. I'm talking
about the sort of jobs keeping the Internet Core running at 50k


Why? Do you think telecoms engineers from such places should be shunned,
when there no suitable local applicants for the job?

Companies seem to be able to get applicants instantly these days, whereas
in the past they'd be happy to wait a while for the right person to come

But with mass immigration wages have plummetted in real terms

Citation required.


Its probably got better since then but that sort of thing is why the locals
gave up on it.

That's about the *net* pay of the pickers, after the farms have charged
them for accommodation etc.

so where's the incentive if it doesn't even cover the rent unless
you're living 10 to a house or in a caravan in the neighbouring field?

You are getting closer there, if being a native on benefits is a
sufficient poverty trap that working for the minimum/living wage is less
attractive than being unemployed and getting housing benefit.

If you get more money in total on benefits why would you break your back
picking veg in a field with zero prospects? I wouldn't, would you?
