The article discusses the issue of economic migration in Great Britain. The average household income in the country is more than 10 times that of 13 other member states. A senior human resource (HR) director argued that migration is a form of social dumping. Restrictions should be imposed to protect domestic jobs and it must be assured that standards of living improved. For the director, economic liberalism was no more than an arm of U.S. imperialism and had to be stopped.
