Why celebrity supports UK immigration

UK immigration
UK born Celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver has made a statement supporting UK immigration.  Oliver, perhaps one of the best-known celebrity chefs to come out of England, has spoken out in support of immigration of different cultures into the UK restaurant business by stating that he feels many restaurants would close without immigrant workers for Europe and beyond. 
Oliver, who has amassed an estimated wealth of £150m, through TV shows, book sales and other celebrity appearances, owns approximately 30 restaurants in the UK. He relies on people immigrating into the UK to work in his restaurants and refers to the current UK workforce as not strong enough to work in his restaurants. He is quoted as saying of the UK young workforce
'I have never seen anyone so wet behind the ears. I have mummies phoning up for 23-year-olds saying to me 'my son is too tired' [after a 48-hour week].'
Oliver states that his working hours in the restaurant trade often reached 80-100 hours a week at their peak, and he still works extremely hard to facilitate his celebrity status, and keep his restaurant chain running. He has admitted he feels that immigrant workers form other countries are far more able and willing to work long hours in restaurants, far more than the UK workers, fresh out of education.
The comments were made in an interview for Good Housekeeping, which is a UK magazine. 
In recent times, the UK have added the occupation of Skilled Chefs to its Shortage Occupation List, which is a list compiled of the job opportunities that may be able to be issued with sponsored visas to migrate to the UK, ion order to fill a skill shortage. 
In this list, the position requires the person to have at least 5 years experience in catering and must not be based in a fast food restaurant or chain of restaurants where the skills of the chef is not taken into account. The job role must pay at least £29570 per year and must be defined as an executive chef, head chef or specialist chef or sous chef. Employers are limited to how many workers they can sponsor in a year and they must be able to prove that they could not fulfill this role by employing from the UK job seekers or by someone with less experience.  They must also state on the visa application why they require someone with this amount of experience and what benefits employing a migrant worker will bring to their business.
