Jersey: proving it’s anything but a supporter of free markets

Posted on

It’s fascinating to note that Jersey, that bastion of the free movement of capital is so ready to argue to restrict access for labour:

ISLANDERS with five years’ residency should get priority for jobs while unemployment remains high, says former Housing Minister Terry Le Main.

There are currently 1,250 Islanders registered as out of work, and Senator Le Main says that while the number remains high, all job vacancies should be checked and limited to applicants with five years’ residency wherever possible.

The former minister undermines all Jersey’s free trade credentials in one go.

And at the same time destroys any chance of bringing in new employees to kick start an alternative economy.

I guess they’ll just have to stick to my Plan B.
