Odd British sandwiches

There seems a boom to tweet photos of strange sandwiches as a joke in the UK.

Greencore Group, a famous food manufacturer, is recruiting immigrants repeatedly from Hungary. It seeks chefs to make sandwiches to supply them to Sainsbury's, Tesco, and so on.

According to a human resources director of Greencore, there were no workers being willing to engage in such jobs in the UK. This fact was reported with a sensational title.

It ignited playfulness of some British people. They made photos of crazy sandwiches one after another, saying "We can make sandwiches!", yet most of which were out of the question to try. It seems an English masochistic joke. Greencore news sparks Twitter’s best sandwich offerings

In developed countries, there are lots of people who are reluctant to engage in simple tasks. This kind of jobs is occupied by foreign people in the countries accepting immigrants such as the UK and the US. It is neither good or evil among this situation itself. On the other hand, many youths are involved in such jobs in Japan, because of its strictly regulation of immigration policy and poor quality of social welfare.

By the way, English sandwiches are not bad. Indeed, I occasionally enjoy English sandwiches. But they are relatively expensive compared to Japanese ones.
