UK – A £1,000 charge to employers for every non-EU migrant worker the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) says 

Companies which hire skilled workers from outside the European Union should face a £1,000 surcharge per head, the Government’s official immigration advisers have said. UK Migration Advisory Committee

The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) said that by increasing the cost of hiring from abroad, the new charge would encourage employers to invest in training British workers instead.

The salary threshold for workers entering Britain under the “Tier 2” route for skilled workers should also be raised from £20,800 to £30,000, the panel recommended.

Both measures would “reduce the use of migrant labour”, said Professor Sir David Metcalf, the chairman of the MAC.

An exhaustive 280-page study of the Tier 2 route also uncovered evidence that British workers’ salaries were being undercut by migrants.
