Why BREXIT could threaten jobs

There are a lot of reports out there that Britain could lose 10 Thousand, 20 Thousand, 50 Thousand jobs after Brexit. I don't know how these figures are calculated and I say on the home page that I'm not basing my conclusions on speculation.

But if post Brexit negotiations leads to trade tariffs on goods from the UK, then two things will happen

  1. Companies based in Britain that export to Europe will become less competitve, which will threaten jobs.
  2. Multi-national companies that set up their manufacturing in the UK to get access to the Free Marketwill consider their strategy. If the Free Market is important to them then they will move production to where they can. Taking jobs with them.
