Migrant workers

The Humber area has a long history of migration. 

Many local employers now rely on both long and short stay migrant workers to keep their businesses going, particularly in labour intensive industries where migrant workers are plugging the gaps due to a shortage of local workers.

We have created a myth busting leaflet that aims to promote positive attitudes towards migrant communities.

It also provides some basic and interesting facts and figures and addresses some of the misleading conceptions (i.e. that migrants live on benefits) that established communities may have about migrants.
