Government determined salaries
Our charming government seems to think that should salaries go above 27,000-29,000 a year for jobs such as engineering geologist, hydrogeologist, geophysicist , clinical neurophysiologist , chemical engineer etc, then that indicates a shortage that must be fixed with immigration. The fact that these salaries are appallingly low in the UK for the skillsets required might be why so many people are deciding to vote UKIP. As we all know, when the government fixes prices lower, you inevitably end up with a shortage. Who is expected to borrow 40K for a degree in chemical engineering? You would have to be nuts to do it.
