"The number of young people from ethnic minority backgrounds who have been unemployed for more than a year has risen by almost 50% since the coalition came to power, according to figures released by the Labour party.
There are now 41,000 16- to 24-year-olds from black, asian and minority ethnic [BAME] communities who are long-term unemployed – a 49% rise from 2010, according to an analysis of official figures by the House of Commons Library.
At the same time, there was a fall of 1% in overall long-term youth unemployment and a 2% fall among young white people."
"Britain’s growing economy and a stronger pound have triggered a new wave of labour migration from Poland and other east European countries, official figures suggest.
The latest Office for National Statistics labour market statistics show the number of east Europeans working in Britain rose to 895,000 in December – an increase of 168,000 or 23% in the past year.
The number of extra migrants in work in Britain from western European countries such as France and Spain also rose last year, but at a slower rate of 10%, to 761,000 by the end of 2014."
Perhaps Europeans—both from the East and West—have different working ethics. Perhaps the UK welfare system is absurdly generous to free riders. What do you think?
