You have always struck me a a capitalist. In the more pure Thatcherite view of the world wages are low and union power is also low or restricted. The big businesses will take advantage of this by buying cheap labour from abroad. This is a predicated and predictable consequence of liberal laizes faire economics. Personally i approve of this, good for the economy in many ways.
You could look to France for a different approach, highly unionised, very controlled economy. In order to compete France is one of the most productive economies around. But has social issues we would not want.
I think the UK has, until recently got it right. The Brexiteers are trying to take to a more French model. I am sure they don't think this is the case though.
