Is the London Olympics really good for British jobs?
My mates dad is a plumber who is trying to find work with 15 other plumbers at the Olympic stadium. When they approached the contractors they were told they had 30,000 Polish builders on their books and no British UK workers were being employed is this right? I am not having a go at Polish workers i know there get paid a lot less then British workers but with so many out of work its not on.
