Anderson, Bridget, Ruhs, Martin, Rogaly, Ben and Spencer, Sarah (2006) Fair Enough? Central and East European Migrants in Low-Wage Employment in the UK. Project Report. Joseph Rowntree Foundation, York.Full text not available from this repository.
This report explores the employment experiences of migrants from East
and Central Europe, and reviews employer demand for their labour.
The research took advantage of the accession of ten new countries to the
European Union on 1 May 2004 to explore the consequences of granting EU
citizens’ rights to migrants in the UK. It describes the perceptions and
experiences of the employment of migrants from four new member states (the
Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Poland and Lithuania) working in low-wage
occupations. Sectors of the UK economy selected were agriculture,
construction, hospitality, and the au pair sector. It examines employers’
recruitment practices and why they hire migrant labour; in particular, what the
perceived advantages of migrant labour are. The report also discusses the
Workers’ Registration Scheme. The research surveyed and interviewed over a
thousand workers and employers before and after EU enlargement.
