By Southwest Nationalist. According to new figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) the number of Britons working in the building industry dropped last year – whilst the number of foreigners working in the industry increased.
The rise in foreigners in the building industry now means that there are 153,000 foreign nationals officially working in the industry.
Care to hazard a guess how many more foreigners are working off the books?
Brian Berry, from the Federation of Master Builders said that “Lots of foreign workers are able to undercut in terms of the hourly rate they charge”.
The manufacturing sector too showed a marked increase in the number of foreign workers, whilst the number of Brits dropped.
32,000 extra foreigners were working in the manufacturing sector, whereas 29,000 Britons left the sector. There were a total of 289,000 foreigners working in the manufacturing sector.
“It is now surely undeniable that British workers are losing out to immigrant workers” said Sir Andrew Green of Migrationwatch.
The pattern is one we see repeated in industry after industry – the number of Britons employed falling, whereas the number of foreigners is increasing.
The British worker is being forced out of the British job market by a tidal wave of cheap imported labour.
Free movement of labour is destroying the bedrock upon which our nation is based, the British worker.
We have Britons stuck in the dole queue, and foreigners snapping up increasing numbers of jobs in all sectors.
Can anyone – other than the few who will see huge profits from driving down wages – honestly say that makes sense?
We do not need this huge flood of foreign labour. Britain has workers enough, and it is high time we put them first instead of throwing them into some global jobs marketplace where the playing field is anything but level.
