Immigration

In a commentary on the OECD report on Brexit, Chris Giles of the FT publishes a graph/chart from the report showing the proportion of high, medium and low skilled foreign workers and compares these proportions with other EU member states.  The UK does not welcome a high proportion of low skilled workers. The OECD and NIESR both argue that restricting immigration will reduce wealth, growth and tax revenue; bottom line is in order to grow we need to fill the growing skills shortages, in fact restricting immigration is a cause of economic decline.
