Does it?
Free movement of people allowed entire sectors of industry and service to import foreign labour at cheaper rates than locals. Look at the NHS - thousands of foreign nurses brought in who are now returning home, leaving an already strained service critically understaffed. Why wasn't the government promoting nurse training two decades ago to prevent this, or offer stipends, grants etc to get more locals into the healthcare system? Cos forrins are cheaper and the net tax yield is higher, and fuck the Britons, they can become social media managers or sutin.

I'd put that down to the ineptitude of 'the shit-sacks in charge here'.

It's the inevitability of short-term political thinking, which is intrinsic to all governments
Which is why it's incompatible with a vast pan-EU project that sets budgetary periods twice the duration of a standard government term. You just get prick governments spunking it all up the wall and wasting a generation's worth of effort.

The NHS being staffed by forrins isn't anything to do with the EU -
it's long since sourced both doctors and nurses globally. It is true that successive governments have done sweet fa to change this, though, what with it being cheaper than training the natives.
