McCollum and Findlay (2011) Employer and labour provider perspectives on Eastern European migration to the UK
McCollum and Findlay (2011) examine how the role played by East European migrants in the UK labour market has altered over time. The study examines UK employers’ motivations for employing migrants from Eastern Europe and associated migration channels. In so doing, the study demonstrates the prominent role played by Eastern European migrants in the labour market. Findings show how the perspectives of those who recruit and employ Eastern European migrants are linked to the production and representation of the region’s migratory flows to the UK. Also see Jack (2009) for a study which investigates the impact Eastern European migrant workers have had on the Scottish tourism industry, Tindal et al. (2014b) for a study of immigration policy and constitutional change from the perspective of Scottish employers and industry and Danson and Jentsch (2009) for analysis of the rural labour market and the value that employers place on migrant labour.
