Who Needs Migrant Workers?

Labour Shortages, Immigration, and Public Policy

Edited by Martin Ruhs and Bridget Anderson

  • Contributions and analysis from experts who have advised the UK's Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) on the nature and determinants of staff shortages and immigration policy
  • Highlights how demand for migrant workers can be linked to wider policies and economic/social systems that are heavily influenced by the state, and are outside the direct control of employers and workers
  • Helps the reader identify the key conceptual issues and questions in the debate about shortages and immigration policy
  • Includes quantitative and qualitative approaches within a unified conceptual framework
  • Includes commentaries on main chapters provided by leading academics
  • Immigration remains a hot topic in the UK. The Government has made many changes to the UK's labor immigration policies. Public consultations are underway that receive very large numbers of submissions (the government's consultation on the cap on labor immigration had more than 30,000 submissions).
