Sometimes governments do interesting things with the tax money they get from us.
The UK government created this interesting podcast showing where migrants in the UK came from and what they do for a living. They’ve brought statistics to life.
It shows that there has been a huge increase in workers at the lower end of the scale and that workers from Western Europe perform highly skilled jobs, compared to lower skilled jobs performed by workers from Eastern Europe. But that was what people on the street in the UK already knew.
This video explains where the 1.5 million immigrants in the UK came from and what they do.
And this podcast shows that the number of jobs in the UK have dropped by a third compared to before the financial crisis. Government fired a huge number of people, who will have found employment in the private sector, based on the statistics. And there are still more open vacancies than former state employees can fill. Moral of the story: “Cut red tape, get more jobs.”
