The Government has announced plans to cut visa applications from non EU migrant workers by 270,000.
The policy will largely affect takeaway food shops and care support workers in care homes. The cut is the result of new restrictions that migrants can only apply for skilled jobs if the position requires qualifications at graduate or equivalent level.
The effect will be to leave many black and ethnic minority takeaways and nursing care homes short of staff. The expectation is that British workers will take up these positions
