Reader feedback: Jobs are not stolen

Re: Spain opening labour market to EU newcomers, Flash news briefs, February 27 - March 05, 2006

The British government just published a report that says the East European emigrants to the United Kingdom do not take jobs from Brits, nor do they benefit in any statistically measurable way from the social welfare system in the UK.

They mainly take vacant positions in the health care sector, the hotel and restaurant sector, the building sector etc. This report is in line with the European Commission report and Vladimír Špidla's comments on it. Other institutions are coming up with similar results. I do not see any propaganda in that. It also makes sense; this is a predictable result. The propaganda comes from the typical sources, the extreme right and left wings, those who opposes any kind of European integration because it would leave them with no political platform (and no income from any kind of parliamentary seats!).
