Q: Who took the Jobs?

I have been having some WP issues etc, and a Chinese colleague suggested the Government was doing the right thing with tightening up visa requirements. He said Chinese jobs for Chinese people.

 

For me, this was interesting. I have seen first hand, thousands of manufacturing jobs exported to the west.

 

I kept my job. I went from west to east, dropped my wages... because it's my job.

 

But now China is saying I am stealing Chinese jobs.

 

I blame the bankers. Who do you blame?

Who cares what he thinks ? You can tell him china got better because of west . You can look at the trade imbalance between China and USA . It is more that 300 billion dollars every year.

What was your reply to the Chinese colleague? I'd have reminded them that they only had a job as it was taken off someone back in the UK

The same thing happens in every country.
Unions or Government tell it's population that that foreign labour is taking their jobs.
What they fail to tell them is that they either don't have the skill or knowledge to do the job or that they are to bloody lazy or the job is beneath them that people from overseas have to fill the void.
I do concede that there are exceptions
