Benefits of Immigration "Close to Zero"


The economic benefits from record levels of immigration to Britain are ‘small and close to zero’, the Lords was told today.

He told peers the Government had said immigrants brought large economic benefits to the UK in boosting economic growth, filling job vacancies that Britons could not or would not do and paying more tax than British-born workers.

But there was no evidence of such benefits, which had been ‘wildly overstated’ by ministers.

The report found certain groups in Britain—the low-paid, some ethnic minorities and some young people looking for a foot on the job ladder—may have suffered because of competition from immigrants.

Consumers like cheap products. Business likes more customers and workers. Proles like feeling more political power by shattering the demographic that rules the country.

Unfortunately, it's also a path to ruin -- a question none of the above ever consider.

and may I add the unemployed are worse off especially in low paid, low skilled no skilled jobs.

Employers prefer the 'disposable' immigrant labour for this. Maybe there is a government finacial incentive to employ the migrant or indeed, they will work for less and so employer gets more profit.

Of course there is always that stipulated legal requirement of a quota for imigrants to be employed.

The cost of immigration is great in terms of the impact on infrastructure, limited resourecs, space and the environment in general.

Indeed, mass demographic change caused by the milllions upon millions of permanent and transitory labour force sidelines the many of the indigenous populations as primary labour force / focus for skilling and employment.

Indeed we are feeling that ruin now.
