    Lets face it you don't want to offer to anyone who isn't white. Just admit it.

    The UK living wage is 7.50 an hour, or 15K per annum. You can get that serving behind the counter in Poundland or in a pub, without breaking into a sweat.


    I certainly wouldn't want to have to live on that. Would you?

    Just pulling sh1t out of your arse and throwing it into the mix is not a sensible way to make your point.

    NHS staff from 14 unions vote to accept three-year pay deal
    Oh my aren't you feeling the love
    You said the Irish hospitality sector would collapse
    My point was there were very few immigrants working in it 20 years ago or 40 years ago
    How come if didn't collapse.
    Scab labour is brought in when the bosses want more profit
    It can't happen if there is a limited labour force

    There plenty scab labour in the hse

    The reality in Ireland at the present time is that the Irish hospitality industry would collapse overnight if all the non-Irish employees went home tomorrow.
    The NHS in the UK is already facing massive recruitment problems because of the Brexit nutters.

    And why only circa 8 eastern Europeans.
    Have you any theories on that.

    Scab labour is a term used to describe workers prepared to take the jobs of striking workers. Your basic problem is that you don't know what scab labour is. In other words you are clueless.

    Oh your a very ratty today
    Scab labour in real terms are workers who are prepared to work for less than what the person who is emplyed is getting. And will accept less conditions .
    Traditionally scab labour was the terms used to describe strike breakers who were prepared to cross pickett lines.
    But the world has moved on. What else do.you.call workers who are prepared to.work for.less than had previously been on offer

    There was a strike in tesco last year
    The Irish workers were outside with placards
    While the scabs were still in working

    This is the reality

    scab | Definition from the Labour relations, unions topic | Labour relations, unions

    an insulting word for someone who works while the other people in the same factory, office etc are on strike
