Abstract

There is a lack of systematic research into migrant workers in Wales; issues such as unionisation, access to training opportunities or industrial distribution are yet to be explored. The present paper aims to contribute to filling this gap, drawing on the data retrieved from the Labour Force Survey over those who came to the UK between 1997 and 2006. In particular, whilst bearing in mind the idea of ‘two-tier labour market’, we will make some comparisons between migrant workers and the rest of the workforce in Wales (together with the migrant workers and the rest of the workforce in other parts of Britain). The paper will first document demographic variations and then the labour market-related evidence on qualifications, employment status, workplace characteristics, union membership, training and pay disparities.
