Why the UK imports so many foreign workers

Dalrymple relates that he recently stayed in a very good London hotel, comparable to the one where he always resides when visiting Amsterdam.

  • At the London hotel, there was not a single British employee. All staff were foreign.
  • At the Amsterdam hotel, all staff were Dutch.

He notes that in the UK, it is impossible to find British staff with the right habits and ways — or even English-language skills — to work in such an establishment. That is why Britain has to import large numbers of foreign workers despite very high levels of unemployment.
