‘Don’t call me racist,’ says U.K. politician who wants businesses to list foreign workers

Forget Twitterstorms — the British government’s plan to force businesses to disclose how many foreigners they employ has whipped up a real tornado of criticism.

The backlash came after Home Secretary Amber Rudd floated the idea, as part of proposals to “prevent migrants taking jobs [that] migrants can do,” media reports said.

“There is still one in ten 18- to 24-year-olds in the U.K. who are unemployed,” Rudd said as she presented the plan Tuesday, according to a BBC report. “I want businesses to think first about locally training people where possible.”

Rudd said the government wants to “flush out” companies that aren’t doing enough to employ British talent, but there were plenty who didn’t see it that way.
