Reader feedback: Are Slovaks just cheap labour?

Re: Reader feedback: Jobs are not stolen

Are Slovaks to England what Mexicans are to America? Perhaps it's time for Slovaks to realise that they are just cheap labour in English- speaking countries. Politicians should create more jobs in their own countries.

The English economy isn't as great as many think, so why would anyone go there to perform underpaid work? The problem is that employers look for cheap labour because they are too stingy to pay market rate.
