Unemployment and immigration
There are 1.5 million foreign workers in this country. This doesn’t include illegal immigrants
There are 1.7 million unemployed Brits in this country.
If we didn’t let any of the 1.5 million foreigners in we could have given those jobs to Brits and then there would be only 200,000 unemployed. There would be even less than that if there was no illegal immigrants.
If we say we have a labour force (adults) of 40 million. This would mean we would have an unemployment rate of 0.5%. When has it ever been that low?
We don’t need immigrants to do the jobs in
