As far as "taking the jobs", technically the bank of england has said wage supression and the use of terrible worker contracts is in part due to the influx of EU migrant workers.
I wish people would stop blaming immigrants when it comes to shitty people abusing the job market.
Dont mistake pointing out facts as blaming something. Just because X leads to Y and pointing this out doesnt mean you blame X for trying to make their lot in life better, you are just explaining why people want to limit X so that Z cant abuse the situation, and it isnt even going into the loophole that many companies have abused for a long time where they can pay people in western nations what they pay them in eastern nations, thus cutting out competition whom actually dont abuse this stuff.
Yes, the shit employers are to blame for it, but the fact is, people simply dont want to have unlimited immigration on top of a multitude of other problems, and the "taking our jobs" argument is technically a bit valid with reguards to this unless you claim the bank of england are just racists.
Not to mention "in part" meaning multiple factors, lol.
