New statistics released by the British government revealed that the number of workers who migrated to the United Kingdom from European Union member states is around 30 times higher than expected.
About 447,000 workers from eight eastern European countries have applied for jobs in Britain since the expansion of the EU over the past two years. Of these applicants, 427,095 have been approved.
The government had estimated that since the EU’s enlargement, no more than 13,000 would apply for work in the UK.
