Dealing with the complexities and struggles of coming into the UK is not always an easy battle to fight. Many immigrants have been turned down, often times families have been separated, yet still the UK has been an increasingly sought out destination for immigrants, no matter the hardship from heavy immigration laws they may face. Woodgrange Solicitors can help in all legal matters relating to immigration, should a sticky and upsetting situation arise regarding your right to stay in the UK. Here’s some facts on why, regardless of immigration crackdowns, this country is still the best place for immigration.
Last year we seen a record high of immigrants come into the UK, numbering in at about 514,000 non-British nationals. These record highs only leave us wondering why this is the case, why so many individuals are desperate to relocate to this small island, in comparison to the rest of the world. Immigrants take up a large percentage of jobs in the UK, as a matter of fact, the employment rate for male immigrants has superseded British males. This survey shows a good deal of why immigrants want to relocate, they see here as a destination for better prospects and where they can attain just as good employment as anyone else. There are an unlimited amount of employment opportunities here for them to grasp, that they may not find where their from. There are also a large amount of benefits to be had for the employees in the UK; you could receive a bonus that would blow your mind one year and then the next you could enjoy several months embracing a new born child with maternity pay under your belt.
There are many immigrants who invest in a student visa in order to journey to a land that holds many world-class, prestigious universities. The UK is said to have had the second highest number of international students as individuals flock in to gain well respected degrees and become more well acquainted with the English language, which is a desired language for many jobs across the world. 48 per cent of migrants now have UK degrees and have taken up the offer of training in a country that is known to have some of the best education facilities. They have also have a large welfare system to take care of them during their stay in the UK and know they will be looked after while they study.
I don’t think anyone would want to miss out on a country that is so small yet it’s the world’s 5th largest economy. This is seen as a location for many where great potential and prospects can be attained. There is now a high demand because of economic growth for high and low skilled labourers. There is also a high percentage of immigrants that are willing to work for low-wage jobs, although many have stood their ground on the income inequalities act and have demand suitable wages.
