Scrap the points system for migrants. Instead employers must also train a UK citizen to replace any foreign workers they’re using

Any UK employer can employ a migrant worker in any job.  But as soon as they do, they must simultaneously train up a UK worker to do the job within a set timeframe, depending on its complexity, and then replace the migrant worker with the UK one after the set training period.

Why does this idea matter?

It allows UK employers to get the skills they need in the short term, while solving the UK's domestic skills imbalances and getting the vast numbers of unemployed people without the right skills trained up and back into work in an area where there is demand.
