Abstract

Using Quarterly Labour Force Survey data this paper illustrates the involuntary crowding of migrants from central and Eastern Europe into non-permanent work when moving to the United Kingdom. The role of agencies in mediating this relationship is examined, as is their new role as actors in industrial relations systems.
