Agricultural Workforce in the UK

Stephen Devlin, an economist with the New Economics Foundation, has said that the UK will need to make farming jobs more attractive to British workers. He has produced a report, ‘Agricultural Labour in the UK’, in which he highlights the importance of migrant labour. He said data showed that foreign workers carried out most of the seasonal, unskilled labour in the UK farming sector.
