Yang says devalued pound will decrease resources for the families of migrant workers in Britain

a PSC In The News reference

"The people who will suffer the most severe impact of Brexit don’t live in the U.K." - Washington Post. 06/25/2016.

Immigrants working in Britain send billions of pounds home every year in the form of remittances. These help with family expenses in migrants' home countries such as Nigeria, India, and Pakistan. Dean Yang estimates that a decline in the value of the pound as a result of Brexit will lead to a reduction in resources available to migrant workers' families. "There’s a very, very strong link between how well migrants are doing overseas and how well their families are doing back home," Yang said.
