Given that the average income for Indian migrant workers falls in much the same range as average earnings in the UK, I am unconvinced that they are taking away 'the cream of the cake'. There seem to be quite a lot of cherries and dough on the top side, which means the 'dessert' metaphor is one of a sponge cake (yum !). Migrant workers, by definition, work in sectors that are open to global competition, and migrant workers from a number of other countries appear to outperform Indians. Which then refutes the following:
But leaving aside the shifting definition of 'average' evinced in the argument (sometimes implicitly defined narrowly, other times applied broadly), my post was principally addressed to the excerpt below, which I found deplorably arrogant and offensive (to say nothing of its being unsubstantiated).Among those who get due educational opportunity and exposure , Indians fare much better in the global arena, which is obvious from the numbers of huge diaspora of Indian IT professionals which represent the average, not the best.
One would have to reconcile the assertions with the evidence base, and advance the argument in a tone commensurate with the strength (or, in this case, sponge-like porosity) of the argument: even the merest exercise of 'mental capacity' in this regard would have shown the disparity between the sweeping claims and the data. And that's scarcely tangential, as mode and tone have as much to do with an argument as the substance.You might have seen a few hundreds but the perception of the world has been made by the hundreds of thousands who are much more capable than average native citizens.
And it looks more like you have tried to delude yourslef that Kiwi/Aussie and English are better off by observing those Indians who were below your capacity but surely you did not dare to see those who indians who are more capanble than Kiwi/Aussie and English , for the fear of breaking thier neck when raise your head to see the number of indians who are smarter than you.
I really wonder why you cannot understand that I am taliking about the global arena, IT in perticular. Probably it must be difficult fot you to admit the facts. You are uselessly pitching your arguement by slipping back to average earning of migrants. I am talking about the skilled migrants, non the non-skilled ones.
And no one needs statistics to prove the things of general observation, for that matter no one would even give them a look. In fact the lengthy posts from you only show your helplessness.
No one will refute that IT means Indians and IT means best pay.
What you say is right. Instead of silencing Kaff, the original poster of put a false and tasteless arguement out of jealousness, his friends are helping him further.
