How Immigration Has Harmed British WorkersThe latest employment figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) have provided conclusive evidence that immigration has harmed job prospects for British people and that around 80 percent of new jobs have gone to immigrants.
The shocking figures are contained in the "Labour Market Statistics August 2010", which is the latest report issued by the ONS.
According to an analysis produced by independent think tank Migrationwatch, mass immigration has “damaged the employment opportunities of UK born workers in the areas most affected” by the Third World tsunami.
Migrationwatch compared labour market conditions in the 50 Local Authorities with the highest international immigration with conditions in the 50 with the lowest.
Their report showed that the areas of the UK “that have experienced the highest levels of immigration have higher unemployment levels than areas that have not.”
A press release from Migrationwatch detailed how employment rates in these areas are lower compared with areas that have received comparatively little immigration from overseas.
“In London, which has received the highest level of immigrants, the study shows there is a positive relationship between unemployment and net immigration from abroad,” Migrationwatch said.
“For example, for every one percentage point increase in the ‘international immigration rate’ (NIM — Net International Migration expressed as a percentage share of the total population of the borough concerned) of a London borough, there is, on average, an increase of around a fifth of one percentage point in the unemployment rate in that borough.
“It also shows that immigration from overseas into London boroughs is associated with a fall in the employment rate of UK-born inhabitants: for every one percentage point increase in the share of immigrants in London boroughs there is a fall of around half a percentage point in the employment rate of UK-born inhabitants.”
According to the ONS report, nearly 80 percent of the much-trumpeted “increase in employment” over the last quarter has comprised immigrants (see table 8 of that report here).
Employment has increased by 188,000 between the first and second quarters of this year but 145,000 of them, or 77 percent went to “non-UK born workers.”
Migrationwatch pointed out that many immigrants “acquire nationality after some years in Britain but the employment figures for non British nationals are virtually the same as for non-British born. This means that those who have entered employment in the last quarter are largely fairly recent immigrants.”
