Re: Post EU Referendum

Re: Post EU Referendum

Maybe El Pais is quoting actual numbers as of this week?
Why would the end of free movement impact the Spanish domiciled workforce?
They have a job, they continue to do it.
Their only problem...

According to El Pais this week, Gibraltar has a total workforce of 24,000 with only 20 people registered as unemployed.

Re: Post EU Referendum

How does that equate to the Canadian situation where they have a Free Trade Agreement with the EU and are part of NAFTA?

Re: BREXIT...what possibly could go wrong?

I know what brackets mean in a sentence. If you have "public sector workers" on one hand and then you add "and many other workers" it is obvious that they are not public sector but private sector....

Re: BREXIT...what possibly could go wrong?

The quote was "What about 'austerity', which has seen public sector (and many other workers) pay increase by only 1% (or lower) every year for most of the last 10 years (for those who still have a...

Re: BREXIT...what possibly could go wrong?

Actually, it does.
How do employment statistics compare over your ten year period?
They seem to have risen by over 2,500,000!
So, "those who still have a job" must be the norm rather than the...

Re: BREXIT...what possibly could go wrong?

But the quote referred to the private sector as well which has actually created many more jobs to offset any reduction in the public sector.

Don't forget, the UK had experiences a huge increase in...

Re: BREXIT...what possibly could go wrong?

If you want to make a valid point about austerity you shouldn't colour it with a nonsense throwaway comment about unemployment because it invalidates the entire post.

Re: Post EU Referendum

Some EU countries have a lower standard of living than others so a job in the UK that pays minimum wage is attractive to someone from, say, Bulgaria. That legal UK immigrant takes such a job, finds...

Re: Post EU Referendum

Re: Post EU Referendum

Re: Post EU Referendum

The difference between "EU foreigners" and "global foreigners" as you call them is that the UK currently only has control of the latter. After the transition period the UK will have control of both...
