A carer firm serves one of our family members (it is a private firm subcontracting under the NHS). Many of their care workers are from Eastern Europe: as they tend to be less willing to complain about working conditions than their British-born counterparts, I'd suspect they are more likely to be underpaid than the brave British person interviewed on Radio 4.
