According to the leading manufacturing association in the UK, post-Brexit immigration rules are disastrous. The association argues that the rules will decimate the workforce in the factories in the country. Make UK remarks that the post-Brexit plans to fix the minimum salary threshold at £30,000 would ultimately cause disastrous impacts. In supporting its stand, Make the UK argues that up to 88% of skilled workers will not be getting that salary amount. At the moment, EU nationals fill up most of the skilled spots such as engineering technicians. The UK government published a white paper in December in which it introduced the new £30,000 salary threshold for skilled immigrants applying for a five-year visa. Make the UK argues that this move will cut down the number of welders, toolmakers, robotic workers, and maintenance technicians, thereby making their services difficult to access. The organization went further to add that only a few of these jobs pay more than a £30,000 salary and considering that the salary threshold is set at £30,000, it is not realistic.
