Impact of immigration on UK economy? Watch
What is the impact of immigration on UK economy? I have a presentation to give on this topic. Cheers.
More profit for large companies that can exploit migrant workers.
Possibly cheaper services, such as trades e.g. Poles are notable for undercutting British tradesman.
Bad - unemployment may increase for the native population due to them having lower productivity/requiring higher wages than immigrants - migrants often send money back home and live very basic lifestyles in their adopted countries, especially those in menial jobs.
There could also be a strain on public services. Migrants may put pressures on housing, education, health and transport systems. This can cause tension between socio-economic groups, especially with the working class.
