Bosses choosing committed foreign workers over 'lazy British', says CBI (BECKY BARROW, 12th February 2007, Daily Mail)

Bosses are being forced to hire record numbers of migrants because they have a 'shockingly low opinion' of local British workers, according to a new report.

The survey, from the British Chambers of Commerce, revealed the rock-bottom opinion held by bosses of many British workers.

The bosses of more than 300 small and medium-sized businesses were asked: "What reasons do you have for employing migrant workers?."

They said migrant workers from anywhere from Poland to India have "a better work ethic" and are "more productive".

Well, the highest priority for the secular state is to stamp out the institutions which restrain perversion, the perverts say.

There is a simpler reason. Perhaps Ms. Barrow doesn't know but the Chamber of Commerce should. The cream of the crop are all expatriates. They go abroad to work and stay there. Particularly in the last 10 years. Two reasons mainly, financial (taxes) and political.

Read any essay of Theodore Dalrymple, and this article will come as no surprise. Very sad...

Probably has more to do with socialist policies. If there is a religious work ethic, it hasn't shown itself in any Arab country or much of Africa.

No one claims there's a religious work ethic.

There's no "protestant" work ethic?

Yes, there is a Protestant Work Ethic.
