Company executives in the United Kingdom have established a critical onslaught on Migration Watch, the UK autarkic, the non-governmental new agency that advocates for stringent immigration laws in the United Kingdom.
The onslaught came after the news agency had declared the visa system (Tier 2) and its support license program had an insignificant impact on the capabilities of firms to employ qualified employees from countries outside of the European Union.
The news agency has been described as “anti-immigration,” and it seems to accept this tag. It is headed by a former emissary to Saudi Arabia, Lord Green of Deddington.
He of late just made available new information that pronounced the visa system as having no significant effect on the capabilities of firms to recruit well-trained employees from countries outside of the Union.
As far as the information released goes, the yearly restriction of over 20, 000 workers had not been transcended between the year 2010, when the system was initially introduced, and 2014 and 2015.
Also, the information says that when the limit was exceeded in the year 2015/2016 when about 22, 000 certificates of support were given out to foreigners, 2,800 of the license were given back without being used or claimed. The news agency was faultfinding in their statements against executives in Britain for screaming out foul play over the effect of the impediments attached to the visa applications, a scheme that has been consistently subjected to stringent rules as well as an increment in the price of the visa put on hiring companies and foreign workers.
The coming month, a yearly fee of £1000 would be implemented as foreigners’ skill charge, thereby making it even costlier for hiring companies to make use of the Visas.
Amidst the news agency’s report admitting that indeed the government had occasionally employed embargo in place when periodic Certificate of sponsorship terminal points had been reached.
It also said “On a yearly interval, no hiring company has been barred from employing well-trained workers since the economic disparity was started, though the majority of the hiring companies may have had to be patient for about a month or two before they could get a valid certificate for their workers. The limit of 20, 700 has been enough to satisfy the requirements for well-trained employees.”
The vice chairman of the news agency also had this to say: “The corporate world has been claiming foul play for a long time about the effect of the limit on business, but now it is apparent that the yearly limit has never been exceeded.
The same corporate body is now ascertaining that a drop in the migration from the European Union for less-qualified workers will be terrible, but based on the evidence presented, the general public won’t buy that.”
