"I can only assume that by your statement you imply that immigrant labour drives down wages by way of excess labour"
Assume nothing - I mean that employers are willing to use immigrant labour o drive down wages and always have done, the Irish famine being typical
It lies within theremit of the government to establish a minimum living wage, they don't, which leaves the field open for those inclined that way to blame immigrants
Government statements have actually stressed the contribution of immigrants, but have ignored the solution of a living wage
