Dr Alberti quoted in Bloomberg

On 5 August 2019, Dr Gabriella Alberti, Associate Professor in Work and Employment Relations, was quoted in Bloomberg discussing the impact Brexit may have on the construction industry.

The article entitled ‘UK Builders See Brexit Crisis When Foreign Labour Disappears’ discusses the potential consequence Brexit could have on smaller house-builders and construction companies across the UK. A large percentage of construction workers come from the EU and restricting their movement to the UK could have a drastic effect on the industry.

On the suggested introduction of a points based system, similar to Australia, Dr Alberti quotes “A points-based system is not very different to what’s currently proposed in the paper. The logic is very much the same; you only enter if you pass a certain level of tests.”
