Johnson right ?
Ever since Johnson announced the new points system for the uk everyone’s been whinging on about how they are relient on cheap labour for their business NO NO NO now the time to make the change !theres way too many immigrants in England ! And now we can make the change without the EU telling us we can’t ,do we really want a country where if you are walking down the street nearly everyone you pass is a Romanian, a Pole or some other Eastern European person? This is England! We need to stop this now! And this is a step in the right direction business has to adjust pay more and move on

People in general don't like change, however as you state the UK is no longer a member of the EU and can decide for itself about its immigration policy, the UK ( not just England) has no need for unskilled/uneducated EU workers along with all their often very large families to do low skilled/low paid work or provide them with social housing, child benefits, tax credit top up benefits, health care, less stress on schools and the NHS which have to use their budgets at the moment paying translator education/health assistants for them....there are plenty of people already legally in the UK who are economically inactive who have sat on benefits for years claiming they 'can't' find work...the change will require them to become economically active and work to earn what they get.......'times achanging' and it couldn't come soon enough

Why are foreigners an issue?
And... who do you expect to do the low paid but essential jobs, such as caring for people, that they do? Are YOU going to, for example?

Everyone goes on about care homes. The owners of these places are filthy rich, they will have to pay decent wages to get the right staff.
If food outlets can not afford to pay a decent wage then they should not be trading.
If food factories only rely on foreign labour then pay more money to their workers.
People have got very rich on the backs of foreign labour, time they started to pay decent wages.

It isn't so much that businesses are reliant on cheap EU immigrant labour but that there just aren't the British people prepared to do many of the jobs. Jobs like working as assistants in care homes wiping the shít off the arses off demented and incontinent elderly people. Care homes are already struggling to recruit and retain staff whilst providing a service within the budgets councils give them which is why so many are closing.

Many nations with large social safety nets are having this same conversation right now. Ideally a lot of those currently on public benefits could and should be forced into work. But doing so is such political napalm that it's just easier to import those willing to work than to insist that generational welfare recipients get off the couch and get a job.
