    £25K seems reasonable. Keep the riff-raff out.








































    This is per month right?

    One has to ask what does govt gain with this hare brained scheme.
    They will lose lot of tax and NI when high salary jobs are dumped in favor of 25k salary jobs.
    High salaried people will lose their jobs.
    its a lose lose situation.
    only winner is CEO of big companies who can give themselves more bonus.

    Purpose of bringing immigrants is to depress salaries from certain industries.Whether the job is relevant for society/country I don’t think counts a lot in the grand scheme of things.
    The essential industries: defence, research are well funded and rely on other ways of bringing resources.

    I think it could be a way of the rulling class to keep control of the lower masses, keep them impoverished, keep them in debt. They work harder and complain less. What could they do instead, leave? They’ve taken care of that through brexit.

    Or at least this is my paranoid take...

    Govt ministers will personally gain nice earnings after their political careers are flushed down the toilet of history.

    Long term of tax loss isn’t their problem.
