Varadkar - 'Migrants more likely to work and pay tax than irish
One in six people were not born in Ireland , relative to other countries thats a very high level , its higher than Britain , Germany , France and the Netherlands . Migrants are so well integrated into our labour market in fact more likely to be working than the average Irish Person and more likely to be paying tax than the average Irish Person and I was at a very good project the other day as to how we can encourage migrants who are not part of the labour market to become involved in it . We have actually done quite well relative to other countries when you consider one in six people are not born here and us becoming a net inward migration quite suddenly , to suddenly become a country with very significant inward migration
