Wait, Isn’t This A Good Thing?

Amazon is running an advertising blitz to woo Britons as fears grow that new immigration rules will hammer its ability to hire low-skilled employees from abroad, leading to thousands of vacancies.

It has long relied heavily on workers from the European Union – previously suggesting in a report that as many as half of its entry-level packing staff came from the bloc.

But the firm could be barred from hiring new migrants to help run its vast warehouse network under the UK’s new points-based immigration regime.

Or will we see the delicious sight of the progressive press demanding a halt to the plans to protect the very company they rail against on a daily basis?

    There must be an exemption for Amazon it has raised the quality of my life and I believe life expectancy, could not dream of buying some of my research and supplement material at the local shops would never stock it. Just waiting now on a delivery that I ordered last night. Thank you Amazon.

    No exemption for Amazon. They can employ UK staff and pay a living wage and also pay corporation tax in the UK rather than offshore it to Luxembourg or Eire.

    It’s about time they paid their way.

      They do ‘pay their way’. They pay what the law allows.

      Want them to pay more? Change the law!
