Growing UK Job Troubles

Comment on this article

In the UK, the “number of people in work was 63,000 lower in second quarter and nearly 75% of employment growth was among non-UK nationals” (The Guardian, August 12, 2015). “Employment opportunities in Britain’s stalling labour market are largely going to workers from the rest of the European Union, according to the latest official data showing a second monthly increase in the number of people out of work. Highlighting the impact of the enlargement of the EU since the turn of the millennium to include former Soviet bloc countries, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said almost three-quarters of the employment growth in the past year was accounted for by non-UK citizens” (ibid.). Additionally, “During that period, employment fell by 146,000 among UK nationals and rose by 91,000 among workers from overseas” (ibid.).

This growing disparity in employment was prophesied long ago when God warned that, due to the sins of the Israelite nations, “The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower” (Deuteronomy 28:43). This is happening today in Britain and in other Israelite nations around the world. As this trend continues, it will foster increased ethnic strife in these nations.
