Silly argument—— Straight answer

The Cavendish Coalition– which represents UK health and social care groups – says it is gravely concerned regarding immigration proposals which they say will seriously affect staff shortages in Care Homes. They claim that the current proposals would not allow enough overseas workers to be recruited, it has warned. They argue that the restriction on immigration forced by a salary cap of £26,500 would further endanger the staffing levels in the Care Home sector

The government said immigration is “not the answer to the challenges in the social care sector”.

However, the head of the Migration Advisory Committee has stated how the Cavendish crowd can solve their problems. He said “Pay them more”!

    This is exactly what I have been saying. When my wife was a carer for her father the care allowance was pitiful. It still is. As for care homes they seem to think the goal is the minimum wage and wonder why their care staff are transient.

    With the Nursing Homes and jobs massacre I think the last thing we need are more migrants. The reckoning is coming .

      Four million unemployed should be grateful for minimum wage jobs in the care sector, that’s how a market-place should work. But the DWP works against that with its profligate generosity.
