I've looked into the UK pension side of things and it seems that as its not 'means tested' - your right as earned then you get it wherever you live but I'm now thinking it would affect the US equivalant of a state pension as is that only awarded per need - if you have other income would you still qualify for it? Off subject I know.

post about the company bringing in foreign workers because 'americans' refuse to do the work. I'm not saying that employees should be abused but in the past people were glad to do any job they could find to feed their families - that has all changed
I wonder how some of these would cope with being a working farmer though - I can remember my DH getting up at 4am to start the first milking, slogging it out all day and finishing the last milking of the day at 10pm!!!
