Yeah, right... You tried working in France in a recent years? Free movement for contractors has become a myth that has nothing to do with Brexit. I've a customer who has had to move certain projects out of France coz they can't get staffed by non French contractors without jumping through all sorts of legal hoops (basically setting themselves up as French companies). As I said this isn't a Brexit thing, the contractors I know involved with this include Germans, Austrians and Irish and that's before we get to people from outside the US. Hell they can't even easily use employees of the same multinational who live outside of France.
