This Family That Is Going To Get Deported If They Don't Find A Job By Midnight Shouldn't Have Any Problems
Metro- An Australian family currently living in Scotland will have to find a job by midnight today or they face being deported.
Kathryn and Gregg Brain moved to Dingwall in Scotland on Kathryn’s student visa in 2011 but the terms of their stay were later changed.
The two-year post-study visa scheme Kathryn presumed applied to her was withdrawn by the government.
Ever since then, the couple have been trying to comply with their visa requirements by searching for a job so they and their seven-year-old son, Lachlan can remain in the UK.
They’ve been looking for a job, which meets the minimum salary threshold of £20,800, for months with no luck. But now they’ve got a deadline.
One of them will have to find a job by midnight today otherwise they’ll be sent back to Australia.
And that, my friends, is how you play the game. Only got 24 hours to find a job before you get booted back to the land down under? Hit up your nearest media outlet, deliver them a story that's sure to get clicks, and the attention of a bunch of companies desperate for some positive public relations is all yours. Give a prospective employer the opportunity to look heroic by bringing you on board and it won't even matter if you're as qualified for the job as Rio is to host the Olympics. If I were a member of this family I would feel as comfortable about my chances of remaining in the country as someone that was mere hours away from deportation possibly could. It's only a matter of time before people are knocking down their door with viable, visa complying offers.
Who cares that they aren't based on merit? Getting a job because you are a worthy candidate is some sucker shit. Especially when you are on the verge of getting evicted from house and home. It's 2016, if you're not declaring your unemployment via viral sympathetic stories that have a fairly simple resolution can you even say you're trying to find work? I personally would have ran this piece on Friday so that some internet savvy CEO's could have a bigger window to get wind of it, but I can admit that 'Family Deported If It Doesn't Find Work Today' hits a lot harder than 'Family Deported If It Doesn't Find Work Over The Weekend'. Either way, I think they should be just fine. Non-anonymous acts of fake compassion that originate from the internet are all the rage right now. Just got to hope there's some proactive active bosses out there making use of their 4G before the clock strikes midnight on the Brain's UK residency.
