Add Hospitality to the Occupation Shortage List.
Hospitality being a low-profit industry often pays its employees very close to the NMW.
The current salary requirement of £25600 prevents entry-level workers from abroad from effectively running the industry.
Being part of the Occupation Shortage List can help alleviate the crisis.
Invisible from the outside, Hospitality in the U.K. is suffering its biggest staffing shortage crisis in history.
This perfect storm is caused by:
- Pandemic created a veil of insecurity within the industry, driving people to change careers.
- Brexit and working Visa regulations, reduced the inflow of hospitality professionals.
- Current Covid-19 quarantine rules that prevent settled workers from coming back.
- Salary of £25600 required to be eligible for a working Visa in the U.K.
