The elephant in the room - stagnant wages because of the free movement of labour

The elephant in the room is that those of us (in IT / everywhere really) who have had below inflation or no pay-rises for many years look at this article and think - I would earn more if the talent pool was reduced - I would be a bigger fish because the pond was smaller.

Don't get me wrong here - I voted to remain - but if we must remove ourselves from so much free movement of labour, those of us left will earn more as a result.

The downside however is that we will have to earn more to in order to survive - inflation will stoke-up soon enough.

I bought my jar of marmite an hour ago just in case...
