We have a ‘skills crisis’ we are told every day, and this is why large IT body shop companies are bringing people in from outside the EU in their tens and hundreds of thousands each year and then charging customers (predominantly the public sector) up to ten times what they are paying these people to deliver failure after failure.
Now the Migration Advisory Committee, appointed by the Grim Reaper of British Industry and Jobs – David Cameron, has concluded that a levy of just £1000.00 would be sufficient to stem the ‘skills crisis’.
If we were to look at a typical Government project then ‘highly skilled’ workers would need to be trained in the following
|Java||3 courses to advanced level||£4,500|
|JEE||2 courses to advanced level||£3,000|
|Spring||3 courses to advanced level||£4,500|
|Hibernate||1 courses to advanced level||£1,500|
|Oracle||2 courses to advanced level||£3,000|
|Maven||1 course to advanced level||£1,500|
|Jenkins||1 course to advanced level||£1,500|
|Agile Methodologies||2 courses to advanced level||£3,000|
|Unix||2 courses to advanced level||£3,000|
|UML||1 course to advanced level||£1,500|
The fact that a so called ‘highly skilled’ worker can be replaced with somebody with only £1,000 of training confirms that the skills crisis is a misnomer that is used by large IT body shops to sell cheap skills at a premium to the public sector and whichever other idiots will fall for their shenanigans.
If these companies really are bringing ‘highly skilled’ workers into the UK because of a skills crisis – then why does the levy recommended by the Migration Advisory Committee not start at £30,000 per person in order to train our own highly skilled workers?
