Chapter Four scrutinises the link between employment and the housing choices available to migrants. The premise of this chapter is that housing has to be paid for. Therefore, this chapter examines if migrants are encountering any barriers integrating into the labour market, and how this relates to the supply of housing in each case study area. This leads into a discussion of the difficulties migrants encountered paying for accommodation in a high cost environment. Consequently, the strategies adopted by low-income households, some of whom rely on social security, to overcome payment difficulties are assessed. Finally, the decision making process in relation to migrant household budgeting is investigated.
