Thanks Captain Obvious: Mass immigration to parts of Britain HAS driven down wages of the poor and put pressure on services

A new report by the Migration Advisory Committee said some areas of the country are ‘struggling to cope’ with high levels of immigration that have put pressures on public services like the NHS, schools and transport.

The committee found in some areas of the country where there has been an influx of foreign workers there was a ‘negative impact on the wages of the low paid’.

It also attacked the weak ‘compliance and enforcement’ of the minimum wage – with poor inspections and ‘feeble’ penalties. The report added: ‘An employer can expect a visit from HMRC once every 250 years and a prosecution once in a million years’.
