Good photo Mick. Should he be wearing safety glasses and safety boots, this should be common sense and a basic requirement. I'm not nitpicking.
Any need to mention his nationality?
Does it matter which country he came from?
Mick has a point. We British workers take Health and Safety seriously. Training should be given. As Ron says no safety boots or safety goggles worn. Who is running the Hall?
They could be steel toecapped trainers?
Those shoes he is wearing could be safety shoes . We have health and safety forced upon us by people who don't know what they are doing .
Must be a bit soul destroying for the poor lad seeing how much still needs chopping. Does he get a bonus if he finishes it all before teatime?
If I was chopping some logs I would be dressed exactly the same as this lad.
When he and his mate who is stood to the left have chopped enough to keep warm, they also work in the hall as waiters.
I think the reason Mick mentioned the guy being polish was because being such a nice guy, Mick probably struck up a conversation with him and determined he was polish. Anyway a lot of people from Poland came over to England and entered the hotel/pub business. So mick could quite easily made an educated guess. No need for anyone to take offence. Are we men or mice.
We had some Polish bus-drivers on our local route in Abram a while ago. They were so very pleasant and friendly and they would get out of the driver's seat to help elderly people onto the bus, also people with lots of shopping-bags or with prams, and their pleasant greetings seemed to rub off on people and get us all chatting.
Dzień dobry’ wiganworld, Na Zdrowie Mieczyslaw.
Polish men where good workers. One man worked with me at Parkside and he was the best worker I have ever worked with. They worked at a lot of pits and worked dam hard.
Wigan has always had Polish residents, even more so in Leigh where there was a Ukranian club on Kirkhall Lane at one time.
If he's Polish staff he should be polishing not chopping.
I'd Rather live next to decent polish people than a certain well known clown from Shevington
I agree with Tony, Polish workers that I have known are really hard workers. To name a few, Zigmunt Misczak, Joe Domanski, Helmut Bajer,
Yes,Tony,Fred,some of the best were the Polish workers at Parkside!
Then again, if he was Chopin he would be Polish
Lovely comment Ticsmon.
I have no complaints with polish family's that come to work here with there family's its when they leave there family's in Poland and family allowance is claimed and sent back to Poland to people who have never set foot in our country.im not racist just a realist.
