Carolyn Fairbairn, the Director-General of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has warned that Scotland's economy could suffer after Brexit and will call for plans to ditch the £30,000 salary threshold introduced for migrants among other things. Ms. Fairbairn already has plans to address top business figures in the country today at a CBI lunch to be held in Glasgow. Scotland relies on immigration to feed its population for the needed workforce for its future economy. But with Brexit coming, there are fears for an impending hardline crackdown. According to Ms. Fairbairn, the new immigration approach for workers must be put into consideration, Scotland's challenge with its demographics. She believes that because only 20% of Scotland's population will be of working age in 20 years’ time, it will tell deeply on its public services and tax base. Sixty percent of Scottish businesses hope to employ high-skilled workers in the future, but about two-thirds of its populace fear that there won't be enough people to fill the jobs.
