Reader feedback: Frosty reception for Slovaks?

This is fairly typical. Big business is interested in gaining wealth and power without the responsibility that goes along with it. Well, perhaps all of your "economic migrants" living and working in Britain would be better off going home now.

All of those so-called low-paid jobs they are doing will be needed by our own people now. There is no other kind of work thanks to you depressing wages down to the levels of a communist state. I can understand why the other EU states denied Eastern Europeans the right to work in their countries.

It appears that the great job grab from the UK could well lead to Slovaks getting quite a frosty reception from the people here if this carries on.
