Control immigration now, says survey

Post by GD on Tue 22 Jan 2013, 6:36 pm

Controlling immigration should be the top priority for Jersey's government - that's according to the latest Social Survey.

The majority of Islanders surveyed say the States need to tackle the issue fast.

Many people want to cap the population and are worried a future influx of foreigners will reduce the number of jobs available for current residents.

On the other hand, some foreign workers believe Islanders don't want the jobs they are working at.


......THE BOSS......

the same needs to be considered in guernsey..there are far too many foreigners working in shops and nursing homes ..unemployment is high for a small island and it is so depressing to see so many foreigners in full emplyment when locals are struggling to find jobs x

exactly kingcole.it is my opinion that unemployed locals should be made to apply for these jobs..employers should only take on residents and not short term licence holders ..after all short term licence leave after 9 months claiming all tax paid in the time they are here.so therefore putting nothing into the economy of the island

How many locals would actually have the right liscence to drive the buses.

perhaps the bus company could start a course to enable locals to learn the job.
