This report looks at the economic and social impact of EU and non-EU labour in low-skilled jobs.
Chapter 3 of the report tackles three key questions:
1) who are the migrants (by country of birth) working in low-skilled jobs;
2) what has been the overall trend in migration flows that has led to this increase in migrants in low-skilled work; and
3) what have been the drivers behind migrants’ decisions to migrate to the UK, including how these have been shaped by changes to immigration policy.
