Poles taking priest jobs

Watch out priests, your job could be given to someone from Poland who will do it cheaper and work harder. They have successfully taken building, plumbing other similar jobs including being a butler for the queen and now they are moving onto priests. Personally I thought the priests would be the last to go… well actually I never even considered that priests would lose their jobs but there ya go, immigration is now hitting the jobs of the priests.

There is a reason for all of this. Monsignor Tadeusz Kukla, the Vicar Delegate for Poles in England and Wales says it nicely "There are over 500,000 Poles working in Britain. We encourage them to integrate but we want to preserve their religion and culture. Once they lose their identity, they lose everything,"

What about preserving our culture and identity in our own country? Why exactly can’t they go home to preserve their culture and identity?

It seems that preserving our culture and identity isn’t a priority for anyone.
