Immigrant worker crackdown announced — in Britain

British Prime Minister David Cameron is looking to pass a series of immigrant worker crackdowns aimed at stemming the tide of immigrants from outside the European Union:

Measures to raise minimum salary thresholds, limit the number of work permits and the introduction of new business levies for businesses employing migrant workers are proposals the government wants to introduce in its drive to reduce net migration to the tens of thousands.

The plans, announced by Mr Cameron during Prime Minister’s Questions, are also designed to protect domestic workers from being undercut by foreign workers and part of the government’s efforts to boost the number of apprenticeships.

If only Obama cared as much about his domestic workers.
