Well of course the truth is that people are only paid what the 'market' thinks it has to pay them, as an absolute minimum they can get away with; indeed if they could train monkeys to do the job and pay them peanuts, they would.
This is a bad and depressing enough fact alone.
However, when you consider the fact that the ruling liberal elite has fixed that market for their wealthy, business paymasters, you realize just how depressing the situation actually is.
They've rigged the labour 'market' for them by allowing unlimited immigration in to Britain; thus providing an unlimited pool of cheap labour.
Subsequently, this is the only reason corporations are pro-European and maintain their high profile effort to remain in it.
Their bread's buttered on both sides, as it's an influx of unskilled labour, so it doesn't threaten their pay and conditions.
Despite all the guff about how these immigrants are all solicitors, doctors, I.T. technicians and alike, all coming here to 'help' Britain, in fact they're not even the plumbers or builders the liberal elite would have you believe.
They are for the main part, overwhelmingly unskilled.
Think about it.
I mean, how would an Eastern European solicitor know and understand all our laws, let alone be qualified to practice.
And how exactly would a foreign plumber or builder be aware of and comply, with both British water and building regulations.
They can't even speak English.
Britain has the highest regulation standards in the world and subsequently, if you are a qualified gas engineer or electrician in this country, you can do it anywhere in the world.
It does not work the other way around.
If there was a sudden, unlimited influx of Managing Directors, Accountants, Surveyors, Solicitors, Barristers and Management Consultants, I think you'd find the liberal elite would soon change their tune.
