THEY’RE ONLY HERE FOR THE BENEFITS…

NO …MIGRANTS ARE LESS LIKELY TO CLAIM WELFARE BENEFITS AND LIVE IN SOCIAL HOUSING THAN PEOPLE BORN IN THE UK

 

National Insurance data shows that migrant workers overwhelmingly come to the UK to work, not to claim benefits.

 Migrant workers are often highly educated people – more than a third left full time education after the age of 21 – twice as many as in the UK population.  Despite higher education and skill levels, their wages are substantially lower than UK born workers.
