Video: how bringing offshore IT workers to UK is destroying UK IT profession and ripping off taxman

Since I have blogged recently about the problem caused by businesses bringing offshore workers to the UK I thought I would promote a Youtube video (see below) sent in by a reader.

This video, which is part of a campaign against government policy, explains how both the UK IT profession and the UK government suffer as a result of the practice of businesses bringing cheap IT workers to the UK to replace IT staff. More to the point allowing them to class a tax free allowance as part of the salary and avoid paying tax as a result.

See these blogs I wrote last week they also explain the issue but the video makes it clear:

Offshore IT workers in the UK avoid paying taxes but are not breaking the law.

Masochistic government IT offshoring rules that reduce tax revenue and increase discontent.
