More on "A Dose of Realism"
On top of that:
``We will expect employers to look exclusively to workers from EU nations to meet any low-skilled labor shortages within the U.K.,'' Home Secretary John Reid said in a statement. ``From the first of January 2007 we will be phasing out all low-skilled migration schemes for workers outside the EU.''
This of course would affect post-Soviet states like Ukraine and Georgia.
I'm tired of all the pundits here who keep carping about "integration" of post-Soviet states with the West but want someone else to pay the bills.
So, if Georgian guest workers are being deported from Russia, and the EU doesn't want them--we are now at "put up or shut up" time for the U.S. Still waiting to hear a single member of Congress endorse the idea I first put forward more than 3 years ago--for a post-Soviet guest worker/visa program. Won't be holding my breath.
