immigrants in london

london, 29.11.2003 – Szczepan (21) is on his way to work. In September 2002 he arrived in London with a 6 month tourist visa. Now he lives and works illegally in Britain. The keen biker wants to buy a motorbike to go on a big tour as soon as he’s made enough money. At an hourly rate of £5-£7 Szczepan earns much more money here for the same kind of work as a builder than he would in Poland.
