Staff first customers always by Dorothy Jarvis-Lee
At the end of September, research conducted by Independent Age and the International Longevity Centre suggested that the UK’s decision to leave the European Union could jeopardise the future of the adult social care provision for disabled, given the sector's reliance on EU workers.
This was followed by controversial suggestions from Home Secretary, Amber Rudd suggesting that companies are failing to train local people choosing instead to recruit skilled foreign workers and arguing that the immigration system should prevent this from happening. This is has sparked widespread debate on the issue of foreign workers and their role in the economy.
