Default Indian IT workers not welcome in UK , Indian cooks are !!

UK closing doors on Indian IT workers .

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...ow/3464188.cms

LONDON: Indian chefs will be allowed to work in Britain's multi-million pound Indian restaurant industry, but Indian IT workers are no longer required here, a key government committee on immigration here said today.

The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) of the Home Office revised its list of occupations and skills that are in short supply in UK, which enables employers to recruit skilled workers from India and other countries outside the European Union.

The revised list includes skilled chefs, secondary school teachers of Maths and Sciences, consultants and senior specialist nurses, some engineering occupations, including civil and chemical engineers.

The recommendations made by the committee are usually accepted by the government.

People from the Indian restaurant industry recently took to the streets in London and Glasgow to protest against new immigration measures that prevented them from recruiting chefs from the Indian sub-continent.

Several representations were also made to the government by MPs and association of restaurant owners. The MAC report published today includes 'skilled chefs' as one of the shortage occupations, meeting the main demand of the industry.
However, it will not be easy for Indian IT workers to find job in Britain due to the surplus in the employment market in the country and the EU. Non-EU workers will only be allowed to work in the shortage occupations listed by the MAC.

David Metcalf, the chairman of the MAC, said that an employer would have to meet three hurdles to be able to hire somebody from outside Europe.

"Firstly the job has got to be skilled, secondly there has got to be a shortage, and thirdly and perhaps most importantly, it has to be sensible to bring a person in - there we are looking at the tension between the short-run fix of bringing immigrants in and the long-run need to upskill the economy," Metcalf said.

The changes, which involved looking at 12 different indicators, will result in a more skilled labour supply, he added.

Occupations which are allowed to use foreign workers due to shortages include ship and hovercraft officers and racehorse trainers. There is also a shortage of veterinary surgeons, while quantity surveyors and project managers are needed for property development and construction.

In Scotland, the list includes filleters of frozen fish, senior nurses in care of elderly units, and speech and language therapists.

Unlikely. There is no comparison. UK is still living in the previous industrial revolution and has very little leadership or requirements for IT. On the other hand US became the numero uno mainly because of its IT prowess.

Lot more curry takeout shops in the UK than there are IT companies. In fact lot of software engineers immigrate to the US from the UK to find jobs in their field.

I have always believed that India needs to have its own domestic IT demand as well in addition to exports. All the Indian IT is very much dependent on exports.

Couple laws like that in Europe and US and all the Indian IT companies are in big trouble. Unlikely such a thing will happen...still...

Default Nothing Wrong

I see nothing wrong with UK policy. The fight in America is against broken immigration system, if America don't want people from India that's their policy but you cannot bring in people and start discriminating, there is a difference.

Willigetgc and anglefire, so much confident you both are.. we need to wait and see. It has started in UK now, slowly it will be in effect in other parts of Europe, and then here in US we need to wait and see how things will go, Already Obama is telling that he wont support outsourcing and Macain says the same in other way.

So it means they are aware of the situation how bad things are out there.

Infy, Wipro, TCS, Satyam, etc took and also taking advantage of the whole system both in terms of taking away Jobs and also placing people on L1 and H1, How long will these people keep quite you think ? Like how we fought for our Independence even these people will fight. It is only matter of time.

We are not born here and didn't do schooling here, we came here to work and earn money meanwhile we are talking about the USCIS process and procedure and fighting why we didnt get GC when compared to our Asian Neighbors ( PAK / Nepal etc ) for quota etc. Do you think these people keep quite if they keep loosing Jobs?

Only Time can tell, we need to wait and see.

It may sound I am wrong, but ground realities are different.

Heard long back stories: UK wanted just onion peelers. Looks like stories were not untrue.

(Note: Cooks are also highly skilled class and their wages and earning surpass IT professionals in some of the places).

And how much do you know about ground reality my friend?
Obama can talk all he wants about outsourcing. It will be an open revolt by the industry if outsourcing is stopped. Are the American people willing to pay premium for things that they have been used to paying low prices? I don't think so.
Did you know that even for their defense industry, materials are assembled in a third country before being brought to the US for final assembly, which makes something like the Raptor affordable by the govt.?

Offshoring and outsourcing are here to stay as they are viable business models and won't go away because some asshat politician panders to the public sentiment.

UK is a lousy country, judging by how much law & order has broken down there. I've got many Brits at my workplace who migrated to Canada, because London town was not really livable anymore.

Ground realities? you sound like my ex-president Musharraf. He also used to rant about ground realities.

I think you over estimate the capabilities what economies of US and UK can deliver and underestimate what countries like India and immigrants like you bring to the table.

We live in times when Arab money is needed to bail out failing financial institutions, Indians companies pick up luxury automotive brands and national automakers ask for govt bailouts to compete in their own markets. With the falling birth rate, Europe cannot afford to act the way it does: migration from Eastern Europe may delay the inevitable but it cannot prevent it.

Rejoice my friend: the word is your oyster



Trust me, no matter how much pandering these politicians do, they cannot undo the advantages of globalization.

After reading this, I remember one my friend who wanted to go to Food craft diploma in India but had take up engineering due to family pressure.
He is now in US on a green card but maintains some crap legacy system.
Maybe I can suggest him a Career change.
Indian cooks who can make decent curry can earn many times than a IT job with no future

Ground Relality I know to an extant, you will get to know more when you try to leave your current employer ( desi company / consulting company ) and try to find a good paying perm job. UK Govt being Lousy they took this decision ? UK govt wants to protect there IT people, so they took this decision, they are working for there people, and they decide what to import and want not to import in the interest of there people.

Obama can talk all he wants about outsourcing. It will be an open revolt by the industry if outsourcing is stopped. Are the American people willing to pay premium for things that they have been used to paying low prices? I don't think so.

Yes, every politician talks to get votes, There wont be a revolt if he increase Tax for the companies which sends or sent Job out, company CEO's will rethink and get the Job done here insted of paying heavy tax for the money / service they are getting it from outside. American people were not paying more when jobs or things made over here ? how were things 6 to 7 years back, when outsourcing cry was not that much.

I know there was outsourcing of jobs during 1985 and 1992 but was not to the current scale ( I remember jobs which people worked in Delhi and Bangalore to convert Hard Paper print outs of Building Plans / Machanical Drawings to digital format using ACAD software )

With current scale and volume of Jobs being outsourced it is natural that some one will cry. Forget about American Citizen how he/she feels about her or his job when it is outsourced, If you are working here in US for past 6 to 7 years and you plan to stay here for long and good and just imagine what will happen if your job is being sent out and you being laid off dont you feel bad ? even if you say you will find similar job and that also goes away what you are going to do?

Same thing over here, when it comes to indivisual they will know the pain, you can tolerate pain to certain extent, after which you go to a doctor or take medication to get rid of pain, Same thing will happen with local people also, but the time taken might be more over here, but sure it will happen one day something similar what UK has done.


Did you know that even for their defense industry, materials are assembled in a third country before being brought to the US for final assembly, which makes something like the Raptor affordable by the govt.?

I know, I also know Boeing lost Bid recently for Mid Air fuelling contract which went to Airbus, but that order or contract was cancelled for which Pentagon did rebidding.

I want to say outsourcing is good for Americans and it is good for other countries too, but to what extent and untill where these Americans can withstand is the question, and right now there are talking of this slowly.


Offshoring and outsourcing are here to stay as they are viable business models and won't go away because some asshat politician panders to the public sentiment.


Yes, true but not for more time, things will change. It is not good that to give everything out to get it cheap, but to buy that cheap also money is required, when there is no money cycle will stop, Freddie Mac and Fannie mae are 2 big mortage giants here in USA, what is the status of these 2 now, there stock is less than 90Cents, they didnt outsource jobs, it is a ripple effect happening,


UK is a lousy country, judging by how much law & order has broken down there. I've got many Brits at my workplace who migrated to Canada, because London town was not really livable anymore.


No country is lousy, everybody is trying to be good, B'cause everywhere there are politicians ruling the country, even we all are trying to migrate to USA does it mean India is also lousy? no way!! It is his / her own requirements and decisions to migrate it does not mean people who are living in there home countries are not having proper living conditions and they are thinking it as lousy.

Let me stop here. As I said in the begining we can keep on debating here, there is no end like.

Default You are...

Assuming a lot of things about me here. I'll let that go as its not pertinent to the discussion.
What is pertinent is that there are and were jobs that they genuinely could not staff because of the dearth of skilled labor. Don't feed me the line that Programmer's guild keeps shouting from the rooftops.
The comment about Boeing was totally out of context to the discussion. I'm not talking about aerospace specifically.
The regulation of H1Bs and restrictions on L1 worked to a certain extent in stopping the complete import of labor. Offshore companies are hiring local talent and have also improved salaries last time I heard. But that also came with an increased billing rate.
I get your point and to say in all honesty, I would be as protectionist if my job is threatened. But business is all give and take. If the US wants other countries to buy its arms and treasury bonds it has to give something in return.

Having said that I work in a company where a major Indian contractor has managed to place a lot of people in its projects. The locals seem to resent that, but what they need to ask themselves is this : Will they work the hours these guys work without any overtime?
As brutal as it sounds its business as usual. Where there's money to be made and saved the management will do it.
