Apparently in the UK system the work permit is something given to the employer rather than the worker -- it's a thing from the government saying it's OK to appoint some random foreigner to a particular post. The worker can only get a suitable work visa if they've got a job lined up where there's been a work permit issued. Also, if you have a permanent resident visa you can do any random job just like a citizen.

This seems reasonably sane, so perhaps it's just the US system that's confusing you?
