Migration Watch UK press comment on the most recent ONS Labour Market Statistics

May 19, 2016

Commenting, Alp Mehmet, Vice Chair of Migration Watch UK, said:

The majority of employment growth has gone to non-UK nationals, including 55,000 from Romania and Bulgaria. Given most EU nationals take up lower skill, lower paid work there will be little benefit to public finances. These figures are really not anything to shout about. If anything, they show that pressure to keep wages down at the lower end of the scale continues apace.
