Nineteen illegal workers in one factory

Posted: February 21, 2011 in British jobs for British workers

Nineteen illegal workers have been caught by UK Border Agency officers during a raid on a Leicester clothing manufacturer on Wednesday 16 February.

IlieActing on intelligence, officers visited House of Creation on Hildyard Road. They sealed all the exits, to prevent potential offenders from escaping, before questioning 60 staff and checking their immigration status.

Officers discovered that 19 of the staff did not have permission to work in the UK. They were all Indian nationals – 18 men and one woman – who had either entered the UK illegally or were working in breach of their visas.

Fourteen illegal workers were arrested and detained while five were temporarily released on immigration bail so they can scarper and turn up elsewhere working illegally.

After the operation at the textiles factory, UK Border Agency officers carried out house searches in the Leicester area in order to recover passports for the illegal workers. Officers also discovered £3,000 in cash at the house of one of the offenders. This was seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

The business was issued with an on-the-spot penalty notice for employing illegal workers and may now face a fine of up to £190,000. Yeah right, I bet that doesn’t get paid what’s needed is a prison sentence for such a blatant disregard for the law.

IlieBefore Downing Street David and Slick Nick start cutting benefits for the unemployed they need to clear out all the illegal workers out of this country to create jobs for those they intend to force back to work by what amounts to fining those unemployed!

The Government is so full of crap

The Department of Transport says over 40,000 jobs would be generated by the controversial high speed rail link plan, which will link London and Birmingham.

Supposedly around 9,000 people would be employed on the construction of the 250 mph railway, that’s if the company building it isn’t foreign and using it’s own specialised workers or cheap Polish labour brought in especially for the job.

D of T then suggests that there will be a further 1,500 jobs involved in its operation. Fifteen hundred people to run one rail line, oh come on!

To cap it all the most wildest of statements, “regeneration of areas around the stations would create 30,000 jobs”. What extra jobs will there be around these railway stations, it might increase business for parking attendants and taxi drivers.

The £17 billion project is unpopular because the new line will pass through unspoiled countryside Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire, including the Chilterns, which is why the ‘40,000 jobs will be created’ statement is being banded about. The bigger the lie the more it will be believed, I can’t remember who said that, was it Josef Goebbels?
