UK: Brexit will cost British households dearly
The effects of Brexit will be catastrophic for agriculture after the departure of foreign labour. One in eight jobs is currently unfilled.
The impact of shortages of agricultural workers is already being felt on food security and animal welfare.
The country is not at the end of its troubles. The Bank of England also predicts that the rise in prices could exceed 11% by the end of the year… In transport, the strike of British railway workers resumes this Thursday after unsuccessful negotiations on Wednesday.
The transport union RMT is demanding, among other things, wage increases in line with inflation.
Brexit will weigh on the purchasing power of the British. The UK’s exit from the EU will cost workers €545, or £470, a year by the end of the decade.
This is what emerges from a study published on Wednesday, June 22, by an independent “think-tank”, The Resolution Foundation.
