EM – Uncontrolled migration is not an answer to the UK labor shortage

The current labor shortage, particularly among truck drivers, is causing disruption and delays across the country: however, Keir Starmer’s uncontrolled immigration is not a solution.

Disruptions and delays in the supply chain illustrate a phase of change for the economy as the prime minister made the transition from over-reliance on poorly paid workers from the accession countries of the European Union to a nation with better skills and education, higher wages and priority for domestic workers.

The current delays in container ships in Felixstowe A cause for concern as the UK’s largest port has built an overhang of shipping containers due to shipping delays affecting a busy time of the year. The recent petrol shortage, caused by a shortage of truck drivers, has understandably created a stir and confusion – panic buying exacerbated supply chain delays and led to inventory shortages as supply struggled to meet abnormally high demand / p> The problem of driver shortage is an ongoing struggle in the transport sector that has relied for too long on low-wage workers from European countries who are willing to endure poor working conditions. If we want the role to appeal to the local people, companies need to respond to the labor supply problem by recognizing the need to improve wages and working conditions return to the tired, failed old model, grab the lever called uncontrolled migration, get people on low wages. The government has formulated a vision for a high-skilled, high-wage economy that fundamentally undermines uncontrolled immigration. We need to invest in people and encourage companies to be more productive by training workers who are currently lacking in skills.

This economic case for reluctance and conservatism about immigration clearly resonates with the people. Two of the callers who commented on Channel 5’s program, following Boris Johnson’s words on immigration control, both self-proclaimed “working class” individuals, supported the prime minister’s position – it is clear that the prime minister’s message on wages and salaries Providing vital supply chain industries like freight forwarding echoes the thoughts of many, especially the less conventional supporters, who first trusted the Conservative Party in 2019.

In contrast, Starmer’s grab for the lever of uncontrolled immigration understandably ignites in many minds Concern. The willingness to open the floodgates with 100,000 new visas for truck drivers shows Labor’s fundamental misunderstanding of the national sentiment, especially of the working people they traditionally represent: Starmer’s willingness to flood the country with cheap labor, stifling wages for Keeping domestic workers and living standards lower is contrary to the desires of the people it claims to represent.

The Labor Party’s zeal to issue visas and increase immigration is a continuation of the pressure on them Free movement of people – in stark contrast to the ethos of Brexit and diametrically opposed to the interests of workers. Starmer’s penchant for promoting low-wage workers at the expense of domestic workers shows that it is the business-friendly interest.

I believe the Conservative Party should work to improve the lives of working people. Personally, I am pleased that the modern Conservative Party is giving priority to the interests of working people and ensuring that the labor market is reshaped in their favor – which is particularly noticeable at a time when these very people are leaving Starmer’s Labor.

I know that there are a lot of people in Ipswich who work in the transportation industry, with a significant portion of my constituents involved in trucking because of its proximity to Felixstowe, and I hope they will think the same as I do – that the Prime Minister’s stance on high wages , high productivity and controlled immigration, represents the best of Britain for the working population.

I remember working in radish agricultural processing for three months – a tough job, with little pay. Out of around 60 employees, there were only two local employees, myself included. From this experience I can say that the Prime Minister’s Plan for Labor and Economy addresses a very real issue in terms of working conditions and wages.

The current shortage of skilled drivers offers an opportunity: the opportunity to increase wages and working conditions to attract workers rather than perpetuating the country’s addiction to importing cheap labor from Europe. While Starmer has clearly lost touch and fueled dependence on cheap labor and poor working conditions, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has shown commitment to protecting the economy and the Prime Minister has developed a vision for upgrading British workers and creating a high-wage economy / p> The 2016 Brexit referendum demonstrated the nation’s desire to “end a broken model of the UK economy based on low wages and low skills and chronically low productivity – and we are moving away from that,” in the words of Boris Johnson. In the vote to leave the EU, the country voted to take control of the borders and put an end to uncontrolled immigration.
