I've never once experienced anything like you've described. In fact, I'd bet that most employers would be rather impressed at a willingness to move
For example, when I was an apprentice @ Nortel, we were based in Maidenhead. We had several chaps who came from Yorkshire and Scotland who the company
took on because they had the right mindset and skills, then they helped them find places to live, either through lodging with other employees or
finding a house share.
My own brother got a job in New York whilst he was in Australia.
As for needing to start "immediately", again, I've never had a single job offer that was to start straight away. Often, there is a lag of 2-3 weeks
while access, accounts etc are all set up. This even applies to temp work where you might still have to wait a fortnight before starting. Only in
low-skilled/manual work will you ever get on a job that quickly.
At any rate, its a personal choice and I can understand people not being willing to move from their home towns, but at the same time you can't then
come on the internet and bleat how hard it is to find work, when in reality you're not looking far enough afield. Surely it is basic common sense? No
work here - move? Same as if there was no food, or water, or houses.
It is ironic some on ATS have blamed the immigrant for stealing jobs while at the same time being unwilling to move from an area with no jobs,
expecting the work to come to them. The reason these immigrants come here and get hired is because they actually show a work ethic and desire that
most in the UK seem to have lost, instead we find it has been replaced with a sense of entitlement and looking to place blame firmly at somebody
What is you`re obsession with moving ?
You sound like a tory , if you dont mind me saying so .... if you do, well
, do you really think that everyone in this country can just get up and
skip into the next town/city to find a job ?
Have the british been " kicking off " about immigrants for days ... or YEARS ?
It IS the immigrants , It IS the government , It IS the muslims , and they ARE spoon feeding the masses propaganda on adaily basis in order to keep
thier cash flow , call me wierd or a fascsist or a racist - whatever you like , it`s time we put a stop to it and got this country back in order .
There`s going to be a massive race war in Britain , muslims running around with machettes and ak-47s right near you , but that sounds silly because
your reality is protected with conservative bubble wrap
The polish scattered back home a couple of years ago after milking us dry , they left us with polish food stores all over britain , some parts of
Britain are like India - others like Bosnia
No ships , no shipyards , no steel industry , no coal industry , disgraceful oil industry , most of the food`s imported , drug addicts left right and
centre , soldiers sleeping on the streets , war veterans / disabled people / the elderly - having benefits cut and being told *we dont help people in
your position* when applying for crisis loans.
The truth hurts , but laughing it off as nonsense is pointless when it`s right in your face.
