What Is The Overseas Labour Scheme?


Recommended Posts

Small footnote in the business section of the Examiner yesterday:

 

'a sharp rise in the number of permits issued under the Overseas Labour Scheme (OLS) which allows people from outside Europe to live and work in the Island'

 

 

Are these people from countries where Manx residents have reciprocal work arrangements?

 

Is this a scheme to allow specialist workers (e.g. nurses) in?

 

Who set this scheme up in the Isle of Man, the UK or the EU?

 

Anyone know more about this?

Foreign nationals who wish to come to the Isle of Man to work, require a work permit issued under the Overseas Labour Scheme and where necessary a visa, in order to so. Work permits are issued for a specific job with a specific employer and normally only to people with high level qualifications or occupational skills and with substantial post qualification experience. The employer is required to show that there is no one available to do the job on offer in the Isle of Man, United Kingdom or European Economic Area.

I think its a fast track scheme for key workers (you know bar staff, cleaners, those in the catering and hotel industries).

I was on a EuroManx flight a couple of weeks ago and the air hostess was eastern european. She spoke very good english, was very polite and very very pretty. Don't see any problem with that.

 

And ive just seen my mates wife (manx) speaks very good English, very polite, not a bad looker, has a house to pay for but is now out of work as a flight attendant due to cheaper labour from eastern europe, whats wrong with that just before Christmas.

I believe there's less opportunities for the older school students to get part-time work as a result of importation of labour.

 

I believe its becoming a big problem with the student population in the UK.

 

Student loans are going up every year, but they can't get the part time work they used to because of illegal immigrants and others who work cheaper, so the UK government puts them in a shit load of debt and because of their lack of immigration policy gives them little opportunity to pay it off.

 

Makes you wonder whose benefit the system operates for.

So there's one rate of pay for Manx workers and another for foreign workers? I don't beleive you.

I dare say that maybe the eastern european hostess has a house to pay for also, be it mortgage or rent.

 

And maybe, just maybe, the eastern european hostess is better at her job than your mates wife (manx) !!
