    Exclamation Failing Schools Are 'forcing UK Firms to Choose Foreign Workers

    Britain has produced a lost generation of young people who lack essential literacy, numeracy and communication skills – and cannot be trusted to turn up to work on time, an influential report has warned.
    It says failing schools have left employers no option but to hire foreign workers, who are punctual, work harder and have a more positive attitude.
    ‘It is not just lower skilled jobs – this is the perception right across the board,’ said report author Gerwyn Davies, of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

    Mr Davies's warning came as unemployment among those aged 16 to 24 hit a record one million.
    At the same time, demand for migrant workers has never been higher. Around 500 foreigners landed a job in Britain every day over the past year, while the number of British-born workers doing so has crashed by 850 a day.
    Mr Davies said there was a belief among employers that the education system was not ‘fit for purpose’.
    ‘They argue that our education skills are too geared towards testing and written examinations,’ he said. ‘They believe many school-leavers don’t possess communication skills.’
    In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Mr Davies predicted that the unremittingly bleak picture painted by employers was likely to worsen.
    Experts are growing increasingly worried by the scale of the crisis facing young people – more than one in five is unemployed – and warn of consequences such as debt, self-loathing and depression.
    ‘Youth unemployment is likely to increase further because there are more experienced people being made redundant who are perhaps more employable,’ said Mr Davies.
    His quarterly Labour Market Outlook report, based on a survey of more than 1,000 public and private-sector employers, is regarded as the most authoritative indicator of employers’ recruitment intentions – and, crucially, lays bare how they perceive school-leavers.
    Only 12 per cent of employers said they planned to hire school-leavers this year. And only a quarter would consider 17 to 18-year-olds.
    When asked what skills the Government should focus on improving to encourage the recruitment of British school-leavers, more than half cited literacy. Forty-two per cent identified numeracy, while 40 per cent said communication and customer service skills.
    It is the employers’ perception that workers from Poland and Lithuania demonstrate a greater work ethic. This is particularly apparent in the hospitality sector but applies right across the board,’ said Mr Davies. ‘There is concern about British workers not turning up on time or being assiduous enough in their work.’
    Foreign workers are also seen as more courteous and enthusiastic.
    Mr Davies said: ‘This is why we have seen more migrant workers in the hotel and restaurant sector. Employers were particularly enthusiastic about employing migrant workers for the customer-facing roles in hotels and restaurants.’
    The survey sought the views of senior personnel staff in sectors such as public administration, healthcare and education. Largely overlooked when it was published in August, its significance has only just become apparent with the release of official jobless figures.
    As well as being seen as lacking vital skills, many youngsters seem disinclined to take lower paid jobs. Malmaison, the upmarket hotel chain, says it is struggling to fill more than 100 vacancies.
    Meanwhile, in just three months, the number of unemployed youngsters hunting for a job but failing to find one jumped by 67,000 to an all-time high of 1.02 million.
    But last week one area – the Test Valley in Hampshire – was identified as one of the few places with more jobs than unemployed people. In all there are 1,287 vacancies against 1,058 looking for work.
    Caroline Nokes, the Conservative MP for Romsey and Southampton North, said: ‘We are lucky because we have a lot of people willing to invest in creating vacancies. However, business owners have told me they have difficulty finding people with the necessary skills.
    ‘One recruitment manager said there are a lot of people who have the qualifications but do not present well in interviews or on their CVs.
    ‘And people who are well educated, those with degrees, are less inclined to take some of the more menial jobs on offer.’
    Another CIPD report, published earlier this month, found that employers are having trouble finding highly skilled British workers such as doctors, engineers, accountants and finance professionals.
    It said 42 per cent of employers ‘currently have vacancies that they are finding hard to fill. Manufacturing and healthcare are the sectors reporting greatest difficulty’.
    Mr Davies, the CIPD’s public policy adviser, blamed the problem on the ‘legacy of the last Government, which failed to invest in skills’ and instead plugged the gap with foreign workers.
    ‘Labour that was sought in the middle of the last decade from countries such as Poland was seen as a useful stopgap to filling the skills shortage at a time when the economy was doing really well,’ he said.
    ‘The problem was hidden to a large degree. Now unemployment is at a much higher level and many of the migrant workers are still here.
    ‘It is a failure to invest. You cannot train doctors and engineers overnight – there is a long lead time.’
    Mr Davies added: ‘It is not as though hiring non-EU migrant workers is an easy option for employers because it is bureaucratic and costly.
    ‘It’s a measure of how much of a necessity it is for a small number of employers. The value to the country of migrant workers is very powerful across all sectors.
    ‘Many of our members value very highly the skills and expertise that psychologists from Australia and doctors from South Africa bring.’
    The CIPD, Europe’s largest human resources professional body with more than 135,000 members, is backing the Government’s welfare-to-work scheme that has promised help finding work for 2.4 million unemployed people over the next five years.
    ‘I think that the key to improving the situation lies with the work programme,’ said Mr Davies. ‘It is about giving them a helping hand, giving them professional, specialist advice that involves coaching and searching for work.
    ‘It is this support that has been relatively lacking in recent decades that could be the difference between us improving the prospects of young people over the next couple of years or not.’
    'British people just do not apply for the jobs'Boasting many of Britain’s most recognisable restaurant and shop chains, Croydon’s High Street is like many others across the country.
    The youth unemployment rate in the area is one of the worst in the country – with one in three of those aged between 18 and 24 out of work, according to figures from the Department for Work and Pensions.
    However, a snapshot survey of the High Street by The Mail on Sunday has found that despite the high levels of unemployment, British youngsters rarely apply for work there, even though there is a high turnover of vacancies.

    As a result, the restaurants and shops are relying on foreign workers to stay open.
    In four businesses, there was a total of 53 foreigners working, and only 15 Britons.

    Post Firms who take on British teenagers instead of migrant workers should be given subsidies, says head of CBI

    Firms should be paid to take on poorly-qualified British teenagers instead of older or migrant workers, a business leader said yesterday.
    John Cridland, director general of the Confederation of British Industry, said the Government should consider offering firms £1,500 subsidies for each young Briton they employ to limit the effects of youth unemployment.
    He was speaking days after figures showed that around 500 foreigners landed a job in Britain every day over the past year while the number of UK-born workers plunged.
    Youth unemployment rocketed to its highest level since records began 20 years ago. It is now more than a million, and one in five of those aged 16 to 24 is out of work.
    Bosses say many young Britons are too lazy and unpunctual to be worth hiring, while the British Chambers of Commerce says a lot of graduates have ‘useless’ degrees and are unemployable.
    But Mr Cridland said the only way to tackle the problem would be to get British youngsters ‘up the beauty parade’ and into jobs by giving bosses an incentive to take them on.
    He said: ‘We need a skilled workforce. We don’t want people scarred by unemployment in the early years of their lives. This is as much a moral and social question as an economic one.
    ‘It has really impressed me that at a time when business has got its back to the wall, at a time it could be forgiven for thinking just about paying the wages of those already in work, it is really worried about teenage unemployment.
    ‘Think back to the riots in the summer, think back to what happened in the Eighties, and business is saying, “Youth unemployment is something we must not let get out of hand”.
    ‘If we gave employers £1,500 as a cash subsidy to take on a 16-year-old, they might take on a 16-year-old with lack of work experience and sometimes poor qualifications rather than a migrant worker or a mature worker who has got those skills.
    ‘So let’s get that young person up the beauty parade, let’s give them a chance to get a job today, not in five years.’
    Mr Cridland said he believed the Government should stick to reducing the deficit but it was possible to stimulate growth without spending large sums of public money.
    Last week, a report from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development said bosses preferred foreign workers because they had a more positive attitude.
    Dr Adam Marshall, director of policy at the British Chambers of Commerce, blamed poor education standards and the profusion of ‘Mickey Mouse degrees’. ‘There may be a course in underwater basket weaving, but that does not mean anybody will actually want to employ you at the end of it,’ he said.
    Meanwhile, a survey by the CBI found that more than a third of businesses were looking to cut staff as confidence plummeted in the wake of the eurozone crisis. Seventy per cent of business leaders said the country’s economic prospects had grown worse since August.
    Last week the Office for National Statistics revealed that the number of British-born workers had fallen by 311,000 in a year, equal to more than 850 a day. In the same period, the number of foreign employees jumped by 181,000, or 495 a day.
    Bosses said foreign workers tended to have a better work ethic. Charlie Mullins, founder of Pimlico Plumbers, said Britons would ‘rather be footballers than do an honest day’s work’.
    He added: ‘We’re increasingly employing foreign workers.
    ‘They have the right attitude and are prepared to work harder.
    ‘The younger British generation who come in for interviews are often sent by the benefit people and have no desire for work.
    ‘They feel as if the country owes them a living.’

    Translate: England wants more immigrants

    Those lazy Britons...

    Attention Poles: England needs you
    ‘The younger British generation who come in for interviews are often sent by the benefit people and have no desire for work.
    Again: England's youth doesn't want to work.

    Britain has produced a lost generation of young people who lack essential literacy, numeracy and communication skills – and cannot be trusted to turn up to work on time, an influential report has warned.
    Really?

    More Africans to England. Negroes are known for their industrious creativity, for being punctual and working overtime along with decent and civilized behavior.

    Englishmen: Excuse my black humor. This is your press writing this.

    Failing schools? Does anybody still believe this? No, they aren't failing. They're working exactly as intended. Enjoy your judaized global world.

    MCPthree we are used to the drivel that comes out of our press. If you believed everything you read in our newspapers we would be a lost cause, not all of todays youth are useless and that goes for all germanic countries. I grew up in the british punk era we still managed to grow up and hold down jobs etc despite our peers condemning our generation.

    I know, i know...

    You know what? This brings the words of (military-historian) Capt. (RN) R. Grenfell from his work "Uncoditional Hatred" (1953) to my mind. Grenfell is referring to himself as someone "old-fashioned" who was raised at a time (pre WW1) "when English academia was fairly intact and sane". But in 1953, according to Grenfell, it was changed to a "medieval witch-hunting climate" when it comes to 20th century history and reality.

    And "future generation may have to pay a high price for what Mr. Churchill and President Roosevelt did" (by replacing a factual perception of events with fantasy, atrocity propaganda and outright lies).

    Because one Big Lie needs several other smaller lies to back the Big Lie, and, at times goes by, more and more lies are needed to back all the foregoing lies----until everything is turned around and on its head.


    This is the state of affairs we are today: Everything is turned around and on it's head.

    Ever wondered why we as a White, Aryan and Germanic people are constantly degraded, humiliated and put down?
