United Kingdom reduces job opportunities for non-EU citizens

The UK government has decided to reduce the number of non-EU citizens that will be entitled to work in the country. The figure has been reduced from 500,000 to 230,000
So, this means that it will be more difficult for those living outside the EU to find a job in the UK.

Many British people will this as a positive move as the country suffers from high unemployment already. Some think that the figure should be ZERO.

The route will still remain open for the those who have invest GBP 1 million plus into the country or for entrepreneurs who have GBP 200,000 ready to start a business in the UK.

Maybe the UK could start using the same methods used in Ukraine. i.e. When a Ukraine company wants to employ a non Ukrainian citizen, they have to provide evidence that a Ukrainian is not available or qualified to do the job.
