    Indeed. Also one has to think why this kind of thing happens... It's because foreigners are cheap cost, and companies have only one motive - maximise the profits.
    So if you think like a business, and you were hiring people, this is exactly what you will also do. You, meaning, everyone here.

    Generally contractors in here do not think like business, and they always assume it's got something to do with the people who are hired who are to blame, rather than the business that are doing this.
    But I won't blame the businesses either, since that is what everyone will do if they were business, rather than heing bums on seats.
    Just playing the devil's advocate here, to give a balanced view - considering this thread has become an Indians bashing thread - in a professional forum that too , rather than understanding the business motive behind all this that is driving it.

    Just had a conversation with a colleague who was hired by Truck Mahindra for a role with BT in Watford.

    He was 4 weeks into a 6 monther when he was shown the door. He swears he was only brought in as a stop gap until they found an Indian replacement.

    Brace yourselves with more of these stories to come, as we go into invoking article 50 / BREXIT and seek to do new business with non-eu countires and returning them favours.
