Migration was debated in summer 2014 with an eye to national elections expected in May 2015. Between 2004 and 2014, the number of non-British-born workers in the UK rose by two million, including a million Eastern Europeans. Between 2010 and 2014, the number of foreign-born workers rose by 715,000, almost half of whom were Eastern Europeans. Rising immigration is associated with flat wages.
In the year ending March 2014, net migration into Britain was 243,000, up from 175,000 the year before. Most of this migration was of EU citizens moving to the UK, including 214,000 in the year ending March 2014 and 170,000 the year before. The UK's six percent unemployment rate is lower than the EU's 10 percent rate.
