MORE JOBS & OPPORTUNITIES

Being in the EU means more jobs for you and your family.

In the EU single market, UK businesses can trade for free, allowing them to grow and create jobs, giving you and your family more opportunities and financial security.

Over 3 million UK jobs are linked to our trade with the EU: one in every ten jobs in this country (Source: HM Treasury). Being in the EU will create 790,000 more UK jobs by 2030 (Source: Centre for Economic and Business Research), creating a larger job market for you and your family.

In the EU you can find work, holiday and retire without visas, and study abroad on the Erasmus programme, offering you and your children even more ways to get on in life.

Leaving the EU would devastate UK trade, businesses and economic growth, and put millions of people out of work. There would be less trade, less economic growth, less investment and fewer businesses meaning higher prices and fewer jobs and opportunities for you and your family now and in the future.

Experts predict that the economic hit would mean up to 950,000 UK jobs could be lost (Source: PricewaterhouseCoopers), meaning less security for your family. The Trades Union Congress says that if we left the EU, the average wage would fall by £38 a week (Source: Trades Union Congress), hitting your family finances.
