I am a little lost and would like someone to help me out. I keep hearing how these economic migrants are benefiting our econmy, well I have done a little digging (very little I know) and am wondering how much it costs in tax or how much they contribute in tax. So lets say that they are on low wages, say £5 PH (this after all is what they are here for is it not? the low paid jobs we dont want to do) This is around £10200 per annum. According to this tax calculator:- Tax paid They will pay £1,445.46 in tax. But according to this calculator:- WFTC They will recieve £6928, if they have 3 children (lets face it they will ALL have at least 3 when they know that they can get paid for them and do not have to show any proof). By my reckoning thats £5482.54 they WE pay THEM to work here. Is there something wrong with my mathematics?
