I wasn't going to join in this debate but ...
We live in the UK. My OH works for a Dutch employer but his work base is in the UK.
He could choose to be based in Holland if he wanted to and we could then choose whether to continue to live in the UK or move to the continent. Or have a home in both places.
Some of his colleagues work out of Holland but still live in the UK.
Other colleagues both work and live in Holland but can come back to the UK to live anytime they want to.
Other colleagues live elsewhere on the continent (Germany, France etc) but still have their work base in Holland.
Some employees get paid in sterling - some in Euros - depending on what suits their personal circumstances.
I can't for one moment imagine that we would enjoy this flexibility and choice around his employment if the UK were not in the EU. On the whole it suits both individuals and employer.
Yes, these are very personal arrangements - but how could I contemplate voting for anything which might disrupt them?
Selfish - yes - but, ultimately, most people will vote for what they believe will give them the best return.
