Although economic migration from the developing to the developed
countries is essentially a post second world war phenomenon, the
scale of such movement speeded up with the relative economic boom
in the West in the 1960s. In Europe, particularly in UK and other
Western/North European countries there had been a steady rise of
economic migrants from South Asia and the Carribean islands who
were offered jobs mainly in the manufacturing service sectors. In line
with the classic settlement pattern of Industrial revolution, the
immigrant workers appeared to be settled in particular areas of
industrial/financial cities of London, Bradford, Sheffield, Leeds,
Oldham, Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt.
