If Britain is to compete with China then the reality is our wages must come down, no politician is going to tell you the truth. The problem in the UK is too many people are living on welfare because they got more not working from benefits. They get their full rents paid, council tax paid, Free dentist and free prescriptions, child benefits, free large council homes for having large families. They also get incapacity or JSA. Asylum seekers get £28 a month for fuel. We even have Somali‘s getting their rents of £8,000 a month paid. What income did they get in Somalia? No wonder we attract so many economic migrants. The Government needs to limit benefits to no more than the minimum wage and stop paying full rents on housing benefit. Only by getting tough and checking people have applied for jobs will the situation turn round and people look for work again.
