Might be worth looking into casual jobs like that. I know people who have started up house cleaning, window washing, private secretarial work, care etc.

this person does occasionally get a bit of washing up jobs in cafes, however (a) they pay her well below minimum wage - because I guess they can get away with it?, and (b) they are often horrible to her. bullying etc! pretty crazy


My nephew is a head chef, he hired an Indian student to work in the kitchen. He knew the kid from a previous job and knew he was dependable, which can be rare in the restaurant industry. My nephew actually drove to pick him up in another state and set up temporary housing for him. But neither of them knew his visa didn't allow the kid to work away from his college town full time while school was out of session, unless the bureaucracy grants him an expanded visa, which he's applied for but can take months to process. So the kid's stuck here with no job and no income right now. I hear he's looking for a under the table job in an Indian restaurant.

well that sucks... seems there are some really foul and counter-productive regulations when it comes to this kind of thing.
please do not mock my potato.

Does she have any qualifications that would allow her to transfer to a skilled worker visa?

I assume you're asking zombie? For my Indian guy, that's not applicable, it's a student visa.

Yeah it was Zombie I was asking. I know a little about UK immigration and visa's but nothing about US ones.

The cheapest options I know of would be a Seasonal or Care Worker which come in somewhere over £200, but also require a sponsor. The care worker one might be the easiest to get since that sector is crying out for people to come work in it.

At a very quick look she could also try the following which may be able to help:

There will be other organisations out there that can help. From what you've said I missed out the lawyers she'd need to pay for. We have almost a million unfilled job vacancies in the UK right now. We should be sticking people arriving in our shores in them, not trying to send them off to Rwanda.

I'm getting old.  I went for my latest eye test and they recommended bifocals.

Had a player tonight fumble (roll a 1 and automatically miss) 3 times in a row tonight (odds are 1/8000).
