Letter: Migrants allow firms to neglect training
31 August 2006
Sir: Mary Dejevsk's concern for central and eastern Europe's "highly skilled people, squandering their skills in Britain" (Opinion, 25 August) is touching.
Depriving central and eastern Europeans of one of the few direct economic opportunities that an expanded European Union offers is not the solution to the our problems of low wages and low skills, or the new member states' difficulties restructuring and adjusting to the single European market.
