People Moving To UK Are Not Taking British Jobs, Says George Osborne

People who immigrate to the UK do not take jobs from local workers, George Osborne has said.

The former chancellor said the hard data did not back up the claim that immigration meant lost jobs to British workers, contradicting the prime minister who told the Conservative party conference last month that she sided with people who had lost jobs “because of low-skilled immigration”.

Theresa May said: “If you’re one of those people who lost their job, who stayed in work but on reduced hours, took a pay cut as household bills rocketed, or – and I know a lot of people don’t like to admit this – someone who finds themselves out of work or on lower wages because of low-skilled immigration, life simply doesn’t seem fair … So change has got to come.”
