I wonder if the foreign workers will work for a lower wage.

As they are directly employed by the Scottish government they will be getting the going  rate maybe a bit extra for accommodation and travel

Read the article.

 

A subcontractor has hired them.

I think the chances of these foreign workers being paid comparable wages is somewhere between slim and zero. 

 

As a stranger to hypocrisy myself, I couldn't possibly comment on how the SNP government lives with itself in events like this. 😁

Just imagine the faux outrage from the SNP if a Tory or labour government at Holyrood hired a subcontractor who used foreign labour whilst Scottish workers were laid off

I would be able to hear it from here!!

Don't know how this works now ex Brexit but would think work visas are needed and if so surely they should be treated as no entry because there are sufficient(probably) personnel available locally/Scotland-wide.

I'm not sure if that's any use.

 

I suspect that foreign labour is more cost effective.

 

If so then the fundamental problem is an inability to compete.
