In­cred­i­ble work ethic of farm hands

Macclesfield Express - - BARLOW’S BRIEF -

I VIS­ITED a farm re­cently and the yard, con­stantly used by farm ve­hi­cles was im­mac­u­late. It’s not some­thing you ex­pect to see in the mid­dle of win­ter.

“It’s the boys,” said the owner ex­plain­ing it was the work of his two Pol­ish farm hands.

“They have an in­cred­i­ble work ethic and won’t leave un­til ev­ery­thing is hosed down and put away.”

I’d heard the same kind of story from hote­liers, re­tail­ers and builders.

The rep­u­ta­tion of Pol­ish im­mi­grants since their in­te­gra­tion into the EU in 2004 has risen re­mark­ably.

No one is claim­ing all Pol­ish work­ers are the same but the over­whelm­ing im­pres­sion is that of a hard work­ing, re­spect­ful peo­ple. Con­se­quently they are much in de­mand.

We have a lot to learn from our Pol­ish broth­ers and sis­ters.
