You do what you want but I bet you dont run your own business? How would you feel of your boss dropped you because on the sly they can pay cash in hand to a non licensed, non local? You'd soon be crying then! Every single local business owner in Guernsey is at the point now where we are fed up with certain firms winning work because they can throw cheap foreign imported labour at the job. Some big firms rely on it. A certain MD of a large local building firm goes in the press complaining that the states wont release big capital projects to inject some life in to the local economy. He gets some work and what does he do? Gets non local sub contractors in! A large proportion of their work force is non local. Its a joke. They even go to the prison to get cheapo labour and bear in mind that around half the prisoners are not local either! Anything to avoid paying above minimum wage. The states should stipulate that a certain proportion of workers on site be local. Whats the point of giving out projects that our taxes are paying for to firms who WILL NOT use local labour.
