Or net new jobs of course, for there were millions upon millions created.
MD writes in to ask whether this is why they want us to stay so much?
“EU unemployment has dropped by by about 1.5 million people in the last year. UK unemployment has increased by ~20K… but UK employed has increased by ~340K. (Numbers from trading statistics)
EU migration to UK was around 300K people, we found out last week? So the reason that the EU wants freedom to work here is we’ve produced 20% of the jobs for the whole darn EU, over the last year.”
Interesting thought and I don’t know the numbers myself….
