    economists say the two industries most likely to be scaled back if we leave the EU are the automative industry and financial services, leading to a loss of up to 950,000 jobs
    with increased tariffs less trade to eu and less demand as we loose free trading acces too a 500million consumer market why would the eu members now trade with us as they account for approx 51% of world trade whilst we account for approximately 4% of the goods and services entering the eu
    higher prices of our goods, imported inflation and less competitive exports and less trade will destroy all of you young potential economists,investment bankers ,accountants etc dreams and you will be competiting with thousands for front office jobs

    It says 'up to' so in reality it's probably much less

    There's no guarantee that it'll happen. Like it says - jobs are linked to trade, not to the EU membership.

    if it actually happens, lucky me is doing a joint honours with half of it being economics at uni.

    As much as I think we should stay in the EU, you aren't "screwed" if you want to go into banking/economics/finance when you're older. There might be less jobs around that sector, but Britain at the end of the day is still a large economy and it won't all cease to exist as soon as we leave the EU.
