UK Needs Immigration to Keep Going
For Britain, the art of migration is highly essential to maintain its health service, commercial sector, local department, public admin and a variety of accommodation businesses thanks in no small part to the over 1.5 million immigrants that are gainfully employed in these areas; a current study has shown.
The nation’s department in charge of the conduction of research stated that immigrants coming into the nation from other countries in the east of Europe tend to work longer and collect a lower salary package when compared to other employees.
That statistic showed their higher concentration in sectors that paid less for more work.
They also tend to be highly educated for such positions that they hold.
The analysis was also able to prove that immigrants coming into the country from nations in the western part of Europe tend to have had a proper university education, a degree to match and a well-paying employment that correctly fits the degree they went to school for.
This disparity in employee profile amongst migrant from the eastern part and western part of Europe employed in the United Kingdom is enunciated by their overwhelming presence in the agricultural and manufacturing sectors and the banking and financial sectors respectively.
Also, it does not bode well for government officials trying to craft a new law on migration from Europe following the implementation of Brexit. The analysis also broke down to show the average salary earnings. Individuals from nations in the western part of Europe, like Spain or France, were earning more regarding wages (£12.59 per hour) than the average population of the United Kingdom whose earnings were £11.30 per hour on the average.
Their counterparts from nations in the eastern part of Europe were earning £8.33 per hour on the average.
Employees from the eastern part of Europe also work harder when compared to citizens of the country. 61% of them average around 40 hours every week, compared with only 32% of citizens.
The disparity in salary earnings can be attributed to the variation in learning. At least half of the foreigners, about 488,000, from nations in the western part of Europe have university degrees compared to their counterparts from the East who number just 242,000 college degree holders.
The analysis also showed that more than 3 million immigrants are currently employed in Britain.
That accounts for around 11% of the entire workforce in the country. Citizens from nations in the European Union are responsible for 7% of that figure, while citizens from countries outside the union are responsible for the remaining 4%.
