ONS statistics on employment by nationality

November 13, 2018

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

These figures are good news. The number of UK nationals in work has risen by nearly 450,000. Additionally, employers appear to be adjusting to the lower inflow of labour from the EU and there are welcome indications that businesses are raising wages in order to attract more recruits. That can only be positive given that the average real wage is lower now than it was ten years ago.
