Lack of People with manufacturing skill is hampering UK economy
A recent research published by the United Kingdom commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) shows that 20% of the manufacturing positions in England are unfilled due to the lack of people who have relevant skills. The research draws on data that comes from more than 75 000 employers across England. It claims that the problem of not having enough skilled workers is especially grave in mid-sized firms and urges the Government to take appropriate measures. Economics experts are afraid that in case that these firms are unable to find the necessary personnel they will not expand any further and therefore will not play their part in the economic recovery of UK. The report of the UKCES shows that while most of the working place are filled very fast those for which skills shortage exists are creating major difficulties for the companies that are affected
The United Kingdom Commission for Employment and Skills did not made specific recommendation for liberalizing immigration rules in order to prevent further worsening of the skills crisis. The commission however seems to favour the recommendations made by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development that restrictive immigration policies lead to skills shortages.
