Immigration: No visas for low-skilled workers, the U.K government says


The post Brexton immigration laws 

The United Kingdom government has introduced post-Brexton immigration laws. This set of legislation is to control the free movement of people from Europe to Britain. They say these rules to deliver on the priorities of the British people. The ministry of immigration urges the employers not to depend on cheap labor but practice keeping their employees, advance to automation technology, and recruit potential workers from the 8million economically unemployed UK citizens. Following the legislation being implemented on 31st December, both EU and non-EU applicants will be treated equally. Many people have reacted to the yet to be adjustments, not only the citizens but also opposition leaders.

 The government assumes the 11 months is enough time for adjustments. Some view the laws as discriminatory, while others saw it as an opportunity to enhance development. For instance, home secretary Priti Patel told BBC that the rules are to control the increased emigration and encourage the growth of the right talents. But Home Secretary Priti Patel said BBC Breakfast the government wanted to “encourage people with the right talent” and “reduce the levels of people coming to the UK with low skills.” Critics said these rules portrayed the UK environ as hostile, and no investors or employees would intend to carry out contracts.

What is the skilled workforce?

According to the set of laws, those with the skilled workforce will be provided with visas when the need arises. The skilled workforce is not only defined by levels of education but also other crafts such as carpentry, child-minding, and plastering. While in education, scholars had to get a grade A scale other than being an average graduate.

The points-based immigration system

To ensure the success of this rule, the government wants to include a point-based immigration which citizens from overseas will only be granted access and jobs in the UK upon scoring 70 points. These points depend on the following qualifications. Being able to speak fluent English, having a skilled job offer with an allowed sponsor, and working in sectors with low labor.

Predicted impacts

These immigration transitions will impact significantly, especially on commercial operations i.e., the industries. For instance, social care. Many social workers are low paid and unskilled. They take care of the old and disabled adults. With the rule not yet in action, there are notable significant changes. It’s unfortunate that most of the applicants will not meet the desired 70 points.

UK government urges people to embrace the yet to come change

The government affirms it would not create opportunities for low-paying jobs but urges businesses to advance. This is because it is more than contented to halt the free movement between EU and UK countries. Bodies representing nursing, catering, and farming claim that it won’t be easy to get qualified staff, especially within the time range provided. The Royal College of Nursing said the proposals would “not meet the health and care needs of the population.”

National Farmers’ Union president Minette Batters raised “serious concerns” about the “failure to recognize British food and farming’s needs.” However, the government pointed out that youth mobility arrangements would remedy such issues.
