Those ‘timid about inclusion’ will not succeed, delegates hear at RPS’s first BAME event


I also forgot to mention that ethnic minorities must put their full support behind no deal Brexit. The EU offers perks to the middle class and wealthy only. In our case, the pharmacy profession benefits from lower paid eastern european pharmacists. Now that large multiples have recruitment offices there, they can recruit them with ease. With more saturation in the work force, it is the ethnic minority workers that loose out thanks to more "increased competition". If ethnic minorities have poorer job and pay prospects, what do you think "increased competition" will do? It will only drive down our pay and prospects further. The white middle class are completely unaffected by this as they tend to have jobs in better positions that are inaccessible to cheaper wage workers and most ethnic minorities. This is why you will find hordes of them amongst the remain camp "remoaning" about the result of the referendum. It is not an ethnic minority problem, if the middle class need to wait longer in the arrivals section when they fly off for their next skiing holiday.
