    I guess if the rates are high enough, some at least may think of coming over and doing a few months' work for a year+ worth of salary.
    Apparanlty lorry salaries are now up to 5k EUR/month in UK..

    And because they'll only be given short-term visas, a lot of what they earn will leave the country with them.

    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    What were the wages per month before Brexit? Are we talking a 100 pounds extra? 1000?

    At a guess, somewhere between 50%-100%

    Looking up numbers from NL both domestic and international drivers the shortage is up 12% compared compared to before Covid. Reading the above 2 articles i get the feeling they are bending over backwards to downplay the brexit part in all this.
    We/NL are a huge EU transport nation because of the big harbors and the problems with drivers have been spoken about for decades. The only thing 'saving' the sector are Bulgarian, Poles, Romanian drivers and a increase in railroad transport to Germany.

    Labour are arguing over who can have a cervix. If they spent a bit more energy on holding the government to account and making the public familiar with their policies they might have a chance at the election. Instead they are wondering into the culture war elephant trap...again.

    Grant Schapps looks like an early prototype replicant.
