    If you've lived your entire life in the UK, which has high quality free education and other universal perks such as free healthcare... and despite these huge advantages you find yourself aiming for minimum wage (i.e zero skilled) jobs.. and THEN lose out to someone who can barely speak english, then yes, at some point in your life you have majorly ****ed up.

    Mass immigration is a free market capitalist policy, which intentionally imports over cheap labour into the job market to undercut the workers already here. Its not just the poor and working class competing dog eat job for jobs and resources with immigrants, its the middle class as well -- there are over 70 applicants to every graduate job now.

    ethnic minorities are more than twice as likely to be unemployed than white people in the UK.

    So, are you saying Britain needs more immigration to do the jobs other immigrants won't do?
    Its been shown none whites have a harder time getting a job. Ironically, recent white immigrants from Europe are taking the jobs from more established black and Asian immigrants and their progeny.

    Yes, its not just the white working class who are forced to compete with the influx of cheap labour. Its the settled immigrant communities too.

    But, i wouldn't put the blame on EU immigrants only, because most immigrants come from outside of the EU, from Asia, Africa and Middle east.
