Millions of Bangladeshis, Indians, Pakistanis who came to Britain recently are spending the days of pain and suffering of breaking their dreams after come to Britain, their dream country.

The minimum wage set by the government in Britain is £11.44 an hour. But Millions of Indian, Bangladeshis are not getting work there for less than even five pounds an hour.

In the last three years, several thousand Bangladeshis have come to Britain with their families on student and different work visas. Most of them live in different areas of London. Even though the capital city of London has the most job opportunities in the country, still thousands of being unemployed not getting any kind of work month after month. Newly arrived Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi’s are literally crying for any kind of jobs on their post in Facebook and WhatsApp groups. Bangladeshi, Indian, Pakistani communities have almost the same situation. Many of those who can’t get work are struggling to survive, turning to food banks and even don’t have a place for sleeping.

And by capitalizing on this opportunity, the owners are not paying even five pounds cash in hand an hour by working in the business establishments of the of the community.

Journalist Ashfak Juned, who lives in Birmingham, told the Daily Dazzling Dawn about two incidents where he was working in restaurants for more than eight hours a day, six days a week and getting a salary of only 120 pounds a week. He said to this reporter, Bangladeshi Businesses in London are not able to pay five pounds an hour. Our people moaning for work in Facebook groups. Many are unable to secure work even after six months of arrival.

Luton-based Lib Dem Party politician and Journalist Mahbubul Karim Suyed said, the economic downturn in the country has left businesses in bad shape. Especially, South Asian businessmen, including Bangladeshis, are paying workers £5 an hour for twelve hours’ wages of £60. Even if you get less than half the wage, the rent for a small room in London for one person is at least 600 pounds. Newly arrived Bangladeshis are being oppressed in the field of salary and house rent. He also told,The job market is competitive, CVs are missing the mark, Interviewing is a learned skill no one taught you, you can’t sell yourself if you don’t know yourself,the Work experience they Want that no one has, digital skills are no longer optional.

Rumpa Roy has worked in some of the top mass media of Bangladesh, including the Bengali Tribune, and has come to the UK as a higher education student. She told, a class of our people are doing business based on providing accommodation and work to the new arrivals. Newly arrived Bangladeshis have to take rent from third parties in the field of house rent due to lack of necessary documents. By partitioning a room, they rent out a room in the garden to newcomers. Those who have come from the country on different visas are being cheated in various ways. It is seen that indigenous employers are not paying even half of the minimum wage of five pounds per hour announced by the government.

Educationist Dr. Renu Luthfa has been living in the UK for more than forty years. She told to Daily Dazzling Dawn,Our ancestors had nothing when they settled in this country. They did not know the language, had no warm clothes, no food, no place to stay. Moreover, they have settled themselves. Did what was necessary to survive. There was no way to complain. When they themselves are stuck with what they got. We have to fight ourselves. At present, I see that they are not working! I see foreigners cleaning the garden, painting the house and doing building work. They are doing one thing in the morning and another thing at night. Our only complaint. Restaurant work food is free, but the salary is not high!

Additionally, newcomers from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan often struggle due to their limited work experience in the UK, a lack of understanding of the job market, and the absence of a professional network within the own community.

A significantly higher proportion of EU-born international students and workers in work visa are employed in the UK compared to non-EU-born students, workers, according to data recently released by the Office for National Statistics.

Black, Bangladeshi and Pakistani (BBP) women face a higher disadvantage in key workplace equality measures, such as pay and labour force participation, than any other ethnicity and gender combinations, a report has found. The Race in the UK workplace: The intersectional experience report by McKinsey – which surveyed 2,758 workers across the UK from all ethnicities – found that in comparison to white, British males, BBP women had the greatest pay discrepancies, earning 21 per cent, 27 per cent and 23 per cent less respectively.
