Extend resident labour market test and increase salary thresholds for work visas
The Government should consider making the resident labor market test compulsory for all jobs that employers intend to offer jobs to non-UK residents, and increasing the salary thresholds for work visas.
The COVID situation has created mass unemployment, and measures are needed to ensure that job opportunities remain for UK residents.
Extending the requirement to carry out resident labour market tests will prioritise the interests of permanent UK residents, and ensure that locals are given preference over non-UK residents in all kind of jobs, and increasing salary thresholds will discourage employers from hiring cheap overseas workers over local residents.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
