Default Work Permits in Cayman

This link (below) might be of value to anybody wanting to work in Cayman. Our Work-Permit system reflects the official contempt that exists towards foreigners coming to work here. One of our senior MLAs (legislators) a while back publicly jeered at a senior civil servant as "a piece of f***ing driftwood". That pretty much sums up the feeling that a large minority of the native-born have for expats. There are plenty of friendly and welcoming native-born Caymanians here, but they tend to be shouted down by the boors.

Workers still come in their thousands, from all over the world, but they always run the risk of being jerked around the way this English couple was.

It still surprises me that people cannot differentiate between the fantasy world of TV and Real Life. This couple clearly believed all the hokum on the Idiot Box.

True enough, Scot! But most people who have never been away from home can get sucked in very easily. Especially when they know that Cayman (in this case) is a British colony. In practice, Cayman gives no preference at all to British citizens. That surprises a lot of aspiring immigrants.

Whilst the delay in the work permit decisions seem unwarranted, I cant imagine starting a life with so little planning and so little information. A handyman and a maid really?
