This presentation examines the underlying complexities in the decisions of Bulgarian migrant workers to remain in the UK or leave following Brexit . Based on an online questionnaire survey of 361 Bulgarian citizens working in the UK, comprising migrant employees/entrepreneurs, unemployed and those out of the labour force, in different regions in the UK, different age groups and professions in 2019, the report studies the implications of the Referendum outcome for migrants' experiences on the UK labour market, including the observable and perceived changes in attitudes of their colleagues, British people, employers and customers, where applicable. The data suggests that gender, age, length of stay in the UK and labour market integration are important determinants of the decision to remain in the UK or leave, either for Bulgaria or another destination.
