More jobless Britons are finding employment with refugees from central Europe who are opening factories in England, it was disclosed today. The latest instance is the employment of 50 Britons in a slipper factory started by two Jewish manufacturers from Germany. The factory, near Newcastle-on-Tyne, is expected to start production within the next few weeks and will ultimately employ about 100 persons.
