Brits take most new jobs since Brexit voteGovernment figures show that British workers have filled nearly all of the new jobs created in the UK since the Brexit vote. Employment Minister Alok Sharma said the number of EU nationals joining the workforce since the 2016 referendum had fallen to fewer than 35,000, compared to the 410,000 EU citizens who joined the workforce in the two years before the vote. This means that while in the two years ahead of the referendum EU nationals accounted for over 45% of the UK’s growth in employment, since the vote the proportion has slipped to around 5%. Mr Sharma says that since the Brexit vote over 1m more people are in work in the UK, commenting: “Employers are clearly already adjusting to lower immigration from the EU.”
