Free flow of labor is great - but that's not what the EU provides.
The EU makes it easy to hire workers from within the EU. They make it nearly impossible to hire skilled workers from outside the EU. If you want to hire a skilled engineer from outside the EU...good luck.
In other words: you can hire anyone you like from 28 socialist factories of laziness. But it's much harder to hire anyone from anywhere else.
Dyson, for example, routinely needed to wait four months to hire the engineers it needed. Imagine the struggle of smaller companies!
Britain now has the option to continue that insane policy, if it wants. It can hamstring its own industries by preventing companies from hiring skilled and productive workers from outside the EU.
But it can also turn that policy around without any approval from Brussels.
While the rest of the EU prioritizes refugees, Britain can prioritize engineers. While the rest of the EU makes it easier for people to not work, Britain can make it easier to be productive. Britain can invite the best and brightest from the other 160+ countries. They can help grow industries and create more jobs for Britons.
Britain has its own socialist welfare and statist policies to fight. But if it can overcome them, it can become the center of growth and innovation in Europe.
