… a nervous coalition government has rushed out measures making new arrivals wait longer before they can claim benefits – and, more controversially, is calling for a wider debate on the principle of free movement within the European Union and perhaps even an EU migration cap.
Of course, immigration of labor is what is supposed to happen to make the euro work. Now that it is happening, political resistance is rising to immigration that will force wages in that country down. But employers will be happy with being able to offer lower wages and salaries.
This is political issue especially in Britain since, while a member of the EU, the UK is not a member of the EZ.
And, of course, emigration will further hurt the "contributing" countries since they will lose highly qualified workers to higher paying nations through this "brain drain."
But everyone knew this when they signed up for the EU and EZ, right?
