Abstract

The debate during the summer highlighted how a low skill labour shortage could seriously impact future UK harvests post ‘Brexit’. Now, it is the turn of the retail sector to raise their very serious concerns with supporting the UK’s retail supply chains to meet with their delivery promises. We already know many of the UK’s short term distribution operations are staffed by labour that originates from the European Union (EU), in particular the Eastern European nations. The leave vote has raised a very serious question in that there could be a low skill labour shortage in the immediate future.
