Open borders and foreign prostitutes

The majority of prostitutes working in wealthier European countries come from board, particularly those from former Soviet countries.  Free movement of labour, high pay, more lax rules on prostitution, more protection for the ladies, ensure those markets are well-supplied.  What attracts knowledge migrants, blue-collar labourers, have the pull on prostitutes.

In Britain, here’s where they come from:

1. Romania (3 in 2006) (12% of migrant total)

2. Russia (1) (9%)

3. Bulgaria (4) (8%)

4. Ukraine (2); Nigeria (5) (7%)

6. Brazil (8) (5%)

7. Belarus (7); Moldova; Poland (6); Hungary; Thailand (9) (4%)
