    If your industry has not experienced a mass EU exodus then wage rises may not be in your cards.

    I'm sure there are problems that will be caused by Brexit and I don't know enough about the issues to be able to render a fully informed judgment as to whether it's a good idea.

    I can tell you though, that the preponderance of American opinion (including my own) seems to be that Brexit makes the UK a more attractive place to invest/set up bra ...[text shortened]... e much more in common in economic philosophy with Britain than with the Mediterranean countries.
    Years ago, a South Korean corporation built an electronics factory (creating 500 jobs) in Northern Ireland.
    It did this not because it was going after the market in Northern Ireland or even the UK.
    It did this in order to gain access to the much larger market in the EU.
