ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of the British government to prevent low-skilled migrants from outside the European Union (EU) to work in Great Britain. The points-based system, which will be implemented in 2008, will score non-EU migrants according to their qualifications, age, previous salary and potential value to the British economy. But low-skilled workers will be barred for the foreseeable future under the system.
