The heartless reality of capitalism

If anything exposes the heartless reality of capitalism it is this story.

Employers are starting to replace migrant workers with other migrant workers once they stop working as hard as they normally do even though the older immigrants are more likely to have integrated. When immigrants settle in they begin to have more ties and are not able to work such long hours so employers replace them with people who are willing to work as slaves.

This is the new reality of globalised immigration. If you don’t work like a dog you can be replaced by someone who is willing to work like a dog from a totally different country who could be from the other side of the planet. Employers don’t care about you. They are just interested in the next pound that they can make.
