This article focusses on the anticipated labour shortages in the agricultural sector. However, the ramifications are being felt across all sectors that use unskilled labour.

While news has concentrated on how the UK will look to target "the brightest and the best", few have looked at the vast use of unskilled European labour needed to keep the country functioning.

This may be what Brexiteers voted for, but, unless government stages another dramatic u-turn, there can be little doubt that the UK will be crying out for more immigrant labour before we leave the EU. Which might make some question why we left.
