Wages soar due to Brexit

As EU workers leave the UK as a result of the Brexit vote employers facing skills shortages are having to raise wages.
A CIPD/Adecco survey found that two-thirds of private sector firms had increased their starting salaries in response to recruitment challenges.
Jon Boys, labour market economist at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, said: “The labour market is surprisingly robust. There are skills shortages and companies are struggling to get the talent they need – that’s what’s driving this increase in pay growth we’re seeing.”
In the hospitality sector wages have increased 38% between 2017 and 2018.
In the construction industry bewtween 2016 – 2018, Crawler Crane Operators have seen the greatest pay increase (54%), while Electrical Testers have reported a 34% surge and Steel Fixers a rise of 22% as firms look to reduce a long-standing reliance on workers from overseas.
Google can show you many more examples.
Those gullible enough to believe the pseudo-intellectual articles that claimed high levels of migration had no effect on wages, and those that take part in the cultural bullying of those that have pointed out that migration does affect wages, can now see clear evidence that they were wrong!
