Free movement is a ‘RACE TO THE BOTTOM’, warns Dutch deputy PM
THE FREE movement of people within the European Union is a “race to the bottom”, the Netherland’s deputy prime minister has warned.

He said this meant Dutch workers were losing jobs to under-paid migrants, while small companies were also suffering.
He said: “In essence, we have seen that free movement has become synonymous with a race to the bottom, with undercutting of wages, with unfair competition in the labor market and that has to do with the rules Europe has produced itself.
