Shocking indictment of Tier 2 ‘highly skilled’ workers who could be replaced with just £1,000.00 of training 

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
TOTAL £27,000

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?
