Theresa May's Policy Against Low Skilled Migrants


Prime Minister Theresa May has lately said that High-Skilled employees are to be ranked first from forthcoming Brexit next year.


The statement comes from the resolution of the UK government to terminate the ‘free movement’ of EU citizens in the UK, in which is expected to crash upon Low-Skilled Migration in general.


Furthermore, the conclusion to eliminate ‘free movement’ comes from a new article from the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC), which was also reinforced by the UK’s Labour Political Party.


By lessening Low-Skilled Migration, the UK government have faith to even out immigration in the UK on the whole and make it more ‘justifiable’ – one of the vital defining reasons in the recent Brexit referendum.


Primarily, the EU Freedom of Movement allowed all residents who lived in the European Economic Area (EEA) – including Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein – to move with ease across the EU with no visas and without a limit of skills obligations.


Though, as the UK’s economy is on the edge in the lead up to the concluding Brexit cut from the EU womb in March 2019, May’s emphasis on Migration is a pushy effort of the UK government to make sure that a decent economic position is upheld after Brexit, in spite of the ever-echoing criticism of disbelieving Brexiteers that the UK’s official Post-Brexit economy is destined for fiasco.


Also, it may be claimed that just because the Low-Skilled Migrants from the EU are being stopped in their ways when travelling to the UK – this does not essentially mean that Low-Skilled Migrants from outside the EU will suddenly prevent from migrating as well.


Therefore, will May’s effort to protect the UK economy by means of migration, especially put a pause to all needless migrants into the UK? Will the UK actually appeal added High-Skilled workers instead?
