MW451 : Distortion of the ICT visa system

Foreign companies who are established in the UK may move their existing employees to the UK without having to obtain a visa under the Tier 2 provisions for skilled workers from abroad (who are capped at 20,700 a year). Instead, they may be admitted in unlimited numbers under special Intra-Company Transfer (ICT) visas.

Increasingly, the iconic American planemaker and its subcontractors have relied on temporary workers making as little as $9 an hour to develop and test software, often from countries lacking a deep background in aerospace -- notably India.

Osborne makes the claims in his latest Evening Standard editorial, writing that “none of its senior members supports the pledge in private and all would be glad to see the back of something that has caused the Conservative Party such public grief”.

As the whole world now knows, on New Year’s Eve in Cologne, dozens of German women were sexually assaulted, apparently by some of that country’s more recent arrivals.

The Staggering Impact of IT Systems Gone Wrong. The world has relied on large-scale IT systems for decades, but we still haven’t learned how to prevent and avoid major glitches and failures. Here at IEEE Spectrum, we’ve been writing about such failures for 10 years (first in the oft-cited article “Why Software Fails,” and later in the Risk Factor blog).
