    From what I understand the new workers are being exploited because they're tied to the employer and they have no opportunity to move. The previous EU migrants used to return every year and were quite happy with the working conditions.

    So looks like the new immigration rules have created a situation of even lower wages and more exploitation.

    In which case, many will probably vote with their feet and go elsewhere.

    Ever since the Brexit vote, I've heard it's got harder to recruit EU migrants to work over here. A combination of feeling like they wouldn't be welcome and the weaker pound.
    Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

      Pound is back to 2011 level (before Brexit vote).

      They have to get a Visa now and pay tax.

      6 million know they are hated so much they have applied for permanent residency.

          The pound was hardly strong in 2011.

          The heyday for migrant workers was the early 2000s. Between 2000 and 2007 (prior to the GFC), the pound never fell below 1.40 and was quite often above 1.50, even briefly topping 1.70. After the GFC it settled well below 1.20.

          By 2015, it had recovered most of the lost ground and was back up around 1.40.

          The Brexit vote saw it immediately fall back to post-GFC levels well below 1.20 again.

                You're just making this crap up. They had to pay tax/ni before Brexit.

                As for the pound, it's still weak.

                Admit it, you just don't like johnny foreigners do you?

                    LONDON —

                    More than 6 million European Union citizens in the U.K. applied to maintain their residency before the end-of-Wednesday deadline that the British government imposed as part of the country’s departure from the bloc, officials said Friday.

                    Britain’s Home Office said that of the 6.02 million people who had applied, 400,000 applications were made in the final month before the end of the EU Settlement Scheme.

                      There is no employment or income requirement to apply for pre-Settled Status or Settled Status.

                      In fact, you will not have been asked to declare your income or confirm you were in employment when you applied to the EU Settlement Scheme. The application only considered whether you were resident in the UK, the length of your residence in the UK, and checks if you have criminal convictions. Therefore, you should have applied even if you were unemployed, in receipt of benefits, or were in low paid employment.

                      There are employment and income requirements for EU citizens who want to come and work in the UK for the first time from 01 January 2021, but this does not affect anyone who is eligible for a status under the EU Settlement Scheme or eligible joining family members. You can read more about the new immigration system on the Hub.
