Brexit Chief Backs Unlimited EU Immigration

in Europe Immigration by

Brexit Chief Backs Unlimited EU ImmigrationShadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer’s decision to lend his support to unlimited EU immigration after the UK leaves EU will most likely result in a civil war amidst labor.

The Brexit chief explained that he has every reason to believe that almost everybody will support the free movement if there are jobs in the UK for EU nationals. What is required of firms in need of workers is to ensure advertisement is made locally before going for the option of getting migrants from the continent, he said. In other words, firms must advertise locally for a job that needs to be done, but if there is no one to do it in the UK, they are free to workers across the continent which he believes will be acceptable to most people. Family reunification is another reason he said could make people accept free movement.

He subsequently suggests that Labour take advantage of a process called Norway-style Brexit which will impose workers free movement on the UK.

Labour’s Election Manifesto

In 2017, Labour’s Election Manifesto agreed on an end to free movement once the UK leaves EU. Sir Keir was a part of this agreement – at the time, he said a change at the border would be inevitable.

The Brexit chief has now changed his position totally, opting for easy movement as he is no longer content supporting Brexit-blocking motions.

Despite the obvious reasons for Keirs’ decision, it is also imperative for him to rethink as a free movement could make firms who are fond of making money off cheap labor to offer job packages no Brits will take hence paving the way for migrants. The sudden free movement call is a betrayal of a significant Brexit demand hence removal of the Brexit chief could be looming.

Brexit Boosts Employment, Earnings, Job Openings in Britain

Brexit Boosts Employment, Earnings, Job Openings in BritainOn Tuesday, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) published figures which stated that between September and November 2018, 75.8% of individuals between age 16 and 64 were employed with paid salaries.

According to the report, 21% are not job hunting (economically inactive), while 4% are unemployed and this is also the lowest record since 1971.

Also, about 853,000 jobs were available between October and December 2018. This record beats the former which was taken a year before, by 39,000.

The net European Union migration has reduced since 2012, and this is good news for the British workers.

While the media and the politicians bewailed that the drop in the EU citizens number eager to use the free movement to move to Britain was because of the “Brexit uncertainty”; however, an average British worker has benefited from the drop in foreign Labour because employers now believe that the job markets which are now competitive means higher salaries for the Britons.

Last year at the Resolution Foundation, Stephen Clarke, a Senior Economic Analyst gave a warning to employers to adjust migration environment which is much lower, in regards to their products, their workers as well as their operations. This was in prospect of the end of low-wage workers which were unlimited, from the continent.

The Bank of England noticed the emerging rise in salaries and mobility of employees in Nov 2017, 17 months after the vote to leave the EU. At that time, Gertjan Vlieghe, a member of the Monetary Policy Committee in the Bank, did say that they have heard news of difficulty of firms to recruit not just in individual sectors but there is also an issue of broad-based pressure. However, lately, the firms are responding well with the increase in wages.

Low-skilled migrants still needed

While the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) of the government reported that the migrants who are low-skilled are not required in the UK after Brexit, but the Tories have bowed to industry pressure, and thus, a 12-month work visa will be given to the migrants by Britain after Brexit.

This opens the door to the influx of less expensive migrant Labour is going to destroy the pledge made by the Conservative Party to reduce immigration, as well as, bring down the British workers’ wages.
