    Perhaps your MP needs to read the new rules

    No need to offer Job in Uk 1st

    Are you sure about that? See New immigration system: what you need to know - GOV.UK

    Or, do you have any knowledge to the contrary?

    What I find astounding is the sheer number of items on the occupation shortage list per Immigration Rules Appendix K: shortage occupation list - Immigration Rules - Guidance - GOV.UK.

    I mean seriously, we are coming into the highest level of unemployment since the 80s, and yet we still miraculously have skills shortages. Really!?

    Yes because companies don't train people - they just poach people trained by others.

    This in itself is a travesty. When I started my software development career, training/courses were still reasonably prevalent, or at least training courses from the likes of Learning Tree or looking at industry certs from the like if Microsoft, Oracle, Cisco and so on. I suspect less and less companies are funding their staff to take those now.

    Why I always smell a rat with the skills shortage claims are to contrast that with the fact that Computer Science graduates have typically experienced one of the highest levels of graduate unemployment over the last couple of decades.

    I think allowing companies to trawl the globe for talent is a scourge on society, when there are plenty of people in the UK who could probably do the work.

    It shows how well valued IT skills are in the UK.

    I agree with this but I'm not sure I have the answers.
    Brexit protectionism is a sham as all it will do is protect the lowest grade numbskulls.

    The wealthy will always remain wealthy. Always have and always will. As long as we are a capitalist society with a monarchy it will always be so.
    We are a lot more equal than 50 years ago, but less equal than 20 years ago.


    oh. and it's not the 1%. It's the 0.01%.
    Most posters one here are close to, or in, the 1%

    Agree with most of what you say.

    Per this from the IFS, invoicing from the last few years would put my company around the top 1% mark but only just. I would imagine most contractors on here are comfortably in the top 5%, if not, certainly 10%.

    that article contoans this nugget

    Partnership and dividend income account for over a quarter of the total income of the top 1%, and over a third of the total income of the top 0.1%, a much higher share than for those with lower incomes. Partnership and dividend income are taxed at lower rates than normal salaries – a policy choice to tax the incomes of business owners at lower rates than employees, which therefore benefits a significant share of the top 1%.
    Do you agree with IR35 reforms then as that will improve equality?
