    Default WIN! - UK labour shortages reported as EU worker numbers fall

    A win for camp Brexit - soon we'll take back our jobs mopping out the hospital bog with an inflation busting pay rise. Could actually be part of the Tory grand plan to bankrupt the NHS into private hands.




    With the right to work uncertain after the Brexit vote, many non-UK nationals are returning home or seeking jobs elsewhere

    Packing up and leaving: sectors relying on non-UK labour to fill positions will face recruitment challenges. UK employers are increasingly struggling to fill jobs in shops, factories and hospitals according to a new report that suggests the shortfall may be down to fewer EU migrants seeking work in the UK in the wake of the Brexit vote.

    Company bosses are reporting labour and skills shortages throughout the food supply chain as well as in sectors such as manufacturing, healthcare and hospitality, according to the latest Labour Market Outlook from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and The Adecco Group, which polls more than 1,000 employers.

    One in four also had evidence that the EU nationals they employed were considering either leaving their organisation or the UK in 2017.

    Gerwyn Davies, labour market adviser at CIPD, which represents human resources professionals, pointed to official data which showed that the growth in the number of non-UK EU nationals in employment had slowed in recent months.

    “This is creating significant recruitment challenges in sectors that have historically relied on non-UK labour to fill roles,” he said. “With skills and labour shortages set to continue, there’s a risk that many vacancies will be left unfilled which could act as a brake on output growth in the UK in the years ahead.”

    The most recent labour market data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed that while EU nationals were still arriving in the UK, they were doing so in smaller numbers than in the past. Growth in the number of non-UK nationals from the European Union working in the UK had almost halved from an average of more than 60,000 per quarter in the nine months to June 2016 to just 30,000 in the three months to September 2016. The figures needed to be treated with caution though, warned Davies as they had not been seasonally adjusted.

    At the end of last year industry groups representing the major supermarkets and food manufacturers warned that EU workers provided “an essential reservoir of skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled labour” and without them food prices would rise.

    The open letter to the government was signed by 30 food and drink industry bodies, including the Food and Drink Federation, which represents major suppliers, including Marmite maker Unilever and Mr Kipling owner Premier Foods; the British Retail Consortium, which counts Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Morrisons among its members, and the National Farmers Union. Employment agencies have warned that the UK’s food industry is facing the worst labour shortage for at least 12 years.

    The public sector is expected to be severely impacted by the risk of a drop in EU labour, with 43% of education and 49% of healthcare sector employers surveyed in the Labour Market Outlook saying they believed EU migrants among their workforce were considering leaving.

    The public sector is very broad so what actual sectors within it are effected?

    Alas, bog cleaning isn't one of those industries which can be outsourced to the Philippines.

    I don't think there is more uncertainty around the right to work here, because a) non-EU nationals are here and Brexit is nowt to do with that and b) it is inconceivable we'll send our EU originated workforce home. The hit to the headline GDP figure alone on that is why not, even if Herr Merkel insists that the EU sends its UK originated workforce back.

    It is probably more to do with the EDL supporting, skinhead, fascist brigade making the UK a bit less welcome, with their chants of "I thought we voted to send you home" and all that. It is sad that they have become empowered even though, as of right now, nothing has changed.

    Doubtful. A Scexit would leave our Irn Bru loving neighbours with all the political clout of Albania.

    Wages for British workers will rise in the event of a Brexit, head of 'in' campaign, Lord Rose says - Telegraph


    And as this prominent Remainer stated last year, a drop in eu migration will result in companies having to recruit locally and raise wages.
    And this is a problem in what way?

    Probably true. I hope they stay with us. Perhaps France will get Le Pen in and call it game over for the EU in which case where does that leave Sturgeon?

    Le Pen is mightier than La Fish?

    To be fair, if EU crumbles, it leaves Scotland with a more realistic independence option.

    Junket's tax avoiding friends won't pass as much profit through Luxembourg and fewer people earning minimum wage will require less public services so there will be less chance of backhanders for MP's wives?
