1. Cheap labor will end
According to the government, with this strict policy, the period when workers are paid cheaply to work in factories, hotels and restaurants will end. Meanwhile, industry and business owners accused London of trying to ravage the economy.
They warned the government of “very bad” consequences such as job losses and factory closures as a result of the policy. Politicians from the Labor Party and the Liberal Democrats criticized him. Health sector workers who are members of Unison rate it “gave birth to an absolute disaster in the health service sector”.
2. European Union citizens or not, migrants will be treated the same
The significance of the policy towards the European Union is also considered large. Because the Ministry of Internal Affairs stressed that EU citizens will get the same treatment as those who were not in the UK. This was implemented immediately after the EU and UK agreement ended on 31 December.
According to the new rules, educated workers are people who attend school up to A-level in the British or Scottish education system. The profession of servants and some types of work in agriculture will be eliminated from the educated category, but there are new additions namely carpenters, plasters and baby sitters.
For those who wish to work in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), are required to get at least 70 points earned, among others, from job offers by approved sponsors (20 points), English language skills (20 points) and has a PhD in relevant subjects. Minimum income is IDR 364 million per year.
3. The government defends itself by saying this policy is to encourage talented people
UK Home Secretary Priti Patel told the BBC Breakfast program that the government did this to “encourage people with the right talent” and “reduce the number of people coming to the UK with low levels of education”.
He also added that business owners could recruit employees of eight potential British workers who were “economically inactive”. The British government itself insists it will not open up other channels for workers with low education or those who are underpaid.
Britain has ordered business owners to “adapt” to end freedom of movement between Britain and the European Union. The government also argues that what they are doing now is realizing Brexit as requested by citizens during referendums and elections.
