Brexit Is Making Some EU-Born Food Workers Nervous About Their Jobs

September 3, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The Brexit vote in June has driven some EU workers to think about leaving their jobs, according to a March-May survey. Forty-seven percent of food supply chain companies – viz., farms, food processors, supermarkets, and restaurants – reported that employees were talking of leaving their jobs, and a third said some have already quit. The U.K.’s food industry relies heavily on immigrant workers, though most of the discussion about Brexit has focused on the impact on car production and aerospace. The number of EU-born people working in the U.K. rose just 1.6 percent from a year ago, the weakest increase in seven years.
