The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) have published their thoughts and recommendations on the future of immigration policy in the UK.
Joss Croft, CEO of UKinbound commented:
“The debate about what the UK’s future immigration policy should look like once we leave the European Union is complicated with no easy answers.
We note with interest today’s report from The Centre for Social Justice and whilst we welcome their recommendations to increase the support for refugees and more penalties for illegal employment practices, their proposal to increase the salary threshold to £36,700 for migrant workers who want to work in the UK will be an impossible challenge for the inbound tourism industry.
The Centre for Social Justice propose that by increasing this salary threshold, this will encourage employers to hire more British workers. This might work for some industries but our members already struggle to recruit home grown employees with language and culturally sensitive service skills that they need – particularly tour operators and accommodation providers.”
