Recent reports say British youth lacking is skills is the reason for importing workers ,this report shows that the reason is because the highest number of apprenticeships is in Eastern Europe and the lowest is in the UK,and yet they come to work from Eastern Europe to the UK.
the details are on page 12 at this link
I did some research about apprenticeships and EU funding-it appears EU funds training in Eastern Europe then they bring them to the UK -cheaper training costs and lower wages for employers?
Heres an example of a job agency that brings workers from Poland to the UK -arranges transport accomodation & Paye Payroll NI services too.So when they accuse Brits of not looking for jobs & being lazy-maybe many of the jobs are not even available /advertised to them?

“The latest ONS statistics show that employment rates for arriving migrants are high.
Of the 290,000 people who immigrated for work in the year to September 2015, almost 60 per cent had already secured a job and the share rose to two thirds for Romanians and Bulgarians.
Around 165,000 EU citizens came to the UK for work-related reasons, with 96,000 arriving to a “definite job” and 69,000 looking for work.”

Unemployed Brits’ chances of finding work dashed by Brussels scheme
UKIP Press Release
The European Parliament today, 25.02.2016, voted throughlegislation which expands and strengthens EURES, a scheme that requires UK Job Centre Plus to put all jobs publically advertised with them on to an EU wide recruitment website and allows private employment services to apply to join EURES.
Jane Collins MEP and UKIP employment spokeswoman commented:
“This expanded EURES agreement means every man and his dog can apply for a job in Britain and Job Centre Plus is obliged to advertise all vacancies to half a billion people.
“So not only are we seeing jobs on tax payer funded websites demanding that painters and decorators speak fluent Polish and estate agents speak Romanian as part of a clever tax swizz for big development companies, we are now making life even harder for unemployed British people desperate to find a job.”
The First Reading legislation was passed in the European Parliament today with 576 in favour, 56 Against and 21 Abstentions.
As the passed amendments were an agreed compromise of both the European Parliament and the European Council it is sure to pass through the Council.
