Migration Advisory Committee publishes Frontier study on low-skilled sectors
The UK’s Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) today published a report by Frontier (Europe) on the workforce composition in low-skilled sectors. The report examines how the use of migrant labour in low-skilled sectors has changed over time and how this compares with the dynamics in the rest of the UK economy.
For the analysis, the UK workforce was segmented into native and foreign born workers distinguished between different migrant groups. The study compares the characteristics between workforce groups and considers why some sectors have made more use of migrant labour than others in recent years.
The analysis shows that despite the fact that more recent migrants are relatively more skilled (in terms of educational attainment) than both natives and previous migrants, they work in more low-skilled jobs. Sectors that offer relatively more temporary jobs are considerably more attractive to migrants than others.
