Abstract

The use of foreign workers on UK construction sites is not new - the Irish navvies that built much of our infrastructure in the 19th century are just one example. Today, the use of migrant labour in construction is more widespread and the workers are ethnically and cultural diverse. This has generated a number of issues and challenges for the industry and society. The issues faced by migrant workers include rights, housing, language, access to and information about public services, health, employment, immigration, education, recognition of qualifications and racism. The recent influx of migrant labour from Eastern Europe into construction has given rise in some quarters to an urban myth that their willingness to take low-paid jobs has depressed wages and forced other workers out of jobs.
