A huge number of overseas nationals is coming to work in North Staffordshire and that has been increased by 74% previous year.
Around 3,605 migrant workers had also registered for the insurance in Stoke-on-Trent Newcastle region and Staffordshire Moorlands in the year up to the month of June. This was the massive increase on total of 2068 who had registered in the last year.
The trend has been reflected across the nation, have been driven largely by the increase in the migration numbers from the countries like Romania and other European nations.
The restrictions of the visa were lifted from the citizens of Romania in the last year’s January month, with the number of people visiting North Staffordshire for doing work has increased from 27 in the year 2013 to 526 in the year 2014.
These people are now the biggest group of the new arrivals in the North Staffordshire by the considerable margin, but the migration from the west of Europe has also been augmented.
Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, deputy chief executive, Jane Gratton, told that the migration is allowing the employers for filling the positions which will otherwise stay vacant. She also said that 38% of the companies recruit the migrants due to their ethic of positive work, and around 26% for their skills and qualifications and 21% hire them for their language skills.
The Royal Stoke University Hospital had been hiring number of nurses from the countries like Italy, Spain, Portugal and Philippines because of the shortage of the local nursing graduates. The hospital trust has been very successful in hiring the foreign nurses.
According to Tristram Hunt, Stoke-on-Trent Central MP, these statistics are confirming that they had hired from the doorstep and that the migration levels is always a concern because of its impact on the rate of wage and the public services.
