pellinore Posted March 9 #1 Share Posted March 9 (edited) Little by little, Brexit is being reversed. Though I expect now we will be taking people from Africa and Asia instead of Europe, which leads to a skills shortage in countries that can least afford it. Rishi Sunak’s government is understood to be planning to welcome in more foreign builders to tackle a chronic post-Brexit labour shortage in Britain’s construction industry. Despite the crackdown on illegal immigration routes, the government is said to be ready to add construction workers to a “shortage occupation list” in a bid to boost sluggish housebuilding. The building sector has suffered from acute lack of workers since Brexit caused many European labourers to return to the EU. The government’s Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has recommended that bricklayers, plasterers, roofers and others construction workers should be added to the shortage list, according to the Financial Times.
