Earnings are up and employment and job vacancies are at record highs as Britain experiences its lowest net EU immigration since 2012.
From September to November 2018, 75.8 percent of people aged 16 to 64 were in paid employment — the highest since records began in 1971. The unemployment rate is at four percent, its lowest rate since the mid-1970s.
The drop in cheap foreign labor has benefited the average British worker. Still, post-Brexit Britain will hand low-skilled migrants 12-month work visas.
