Unemployment jumped by 44,000 in the final three months of 2010 to just under 2.5 million, meaning that 7.9 per cent of workers were out of a job. But the youth unemployment rate hit 20.5 per cent, following a 66,000 increase to 965,000, the highest figures since records began in 1992.

I'm not convinced of that argument to be honest, there are many sectors that would literally collapse were it not for "Immigrants" who do the jobs.
There have been shortages for instance, of Nurses and Care Assistants in the health sector and NHS... the NHS would literally not function if the Government didn't have a scheme in place to allow foreign nationals to come in and do the jobs.
I'm not saying that it has no bearing whatsoever, just that the impact is greatly exaggerated and usually by those with an agenda or an ulterior motive.
Perhaps if our government and companies had decent training schemes in place to train our youngsters and get them up to the level that employers need, maybe there would be less unemployed?
Plus there's the whole
Employer :"We can't employ you because you don't have the experience"
Potential Employee : "Well how can I get the experience if you wont employ me?"
There are many, many different factors with employment..... and right now, Immigration is pretty much near the bottom... the economic collapse is the number one reason, plus beaurocracy from the EU regarding employment laws regarding new employees.... red tape is choking many employers.
