Their pursuit for higher education lands them in this country. The argument is that the US has better space and environment to perform technological innovations, but in the process, they decide to settle down. These people are an asset to the economy of United States. Allowing these hardworking people to work in United States will help the country a big deal. In addition, the immigrants make a wide consumer base for United States thus, providing ready market for the internally produced goods thus boosting the economy (Borjas).
I believe that Immigration for the migrants is good for them, because they are fleeing/migrating from a bad situation in their former country. For the Country that they are migrating into, it could cause a problem, because of the sheer amount of people migrating into their country. For the United states and citizens, it can be beneficial, because the migrants will do any work, while most of the citizens would prefer to not have to do the jobs that migrants are willing to do.
People’s come from another country to make a new beginning in the United Stated struggle the challenges of being an immigrant and migrant worker. Both share similar challenges such as discrimination, language barrier, salary and citizenship. However, the only difference between them, migrant worker do not stay in one place to live and work, they are consistently all over the place by their jobs. For immigrant are permanently in one place to make a living . Everyday immigrant and migrant worker are forced on to make a living to provide themselves or their family to be stable financially.
(Legrain) With introduction of new peoples come new ideas, cultural experiences, and skills that can all be used to benefit our country. High skilled people from other countries could help American companies develop new drugs, technologies, appliances and even new architectural ideas.” Twenty-one of Britain’s Nobel-prize winners arrived in the country as refugees.” (Legrain) The foreigners with new ideas could spark the next big American innovation with their different ways of thinking and perspective. Since they are new to our country they see differently than we do, and can have a completely different view on things. This cultural diversity can also transform little towns into cities with the new people inhabiting them. The immigrants could bring in their cultures and help build our towns into culturally diverse cities that would maybe attract tourists and new residents.
To begin it is helpful to understand that the word “migrant” is a rather contested concept, one that changes over time, and varies depending on the criteria used to assign it.(Raghuram & Erel, 2014, p.133)
The global mobility of human resources between countries is a key driving force of the currently ongoing economic and regional development all over the world. It is indisputable that the immigration of international labour force would exert many positive and important impacts on the economic, cultural and social structure of both migrant-receiving and migrant-sending countries. Actually, the trend of temporary and permanent immigrants increasing in some western countries began to gain momentum in recent years. Organization for Economic Cooperation Development (OECD 2004) reports indicated that there were more than 1 million new immigrants in the United States in 2001 and 2002, increased by 25% from 2000; in some European countries
Not only do they help with industrializing towns nationwide, but also they help companies worldwide and foreign affairs. Immigrants are quite beneficial to the American economy, “…immigrants also positively benefit the economy by increasing demand, spurring investment, and keeping receiving-country industries competitive through enhancing capital productivity” (Nadadur 1). They help the economy in different ways making them one of the reasons for our well-established capitalist government with the opportunity to grow. Immigrants in the United States strengthen foreign affairs because it shows how welcome they are to people from nations everywhere they aren’t exclusive or racist or prejudice to other countries. Accepting all kinds of immigrants builds a certain kind of relationship with other countries and their citizens making immigration important to foreign affairs.
When migrants come to US, they should find jobs. Here a lot of differences between Mexican, Central Americans and Cubans. When Cubans come, they have some level of education that is why they have much higher wages. Also, they almost all work in management businesses, like restaurants, hotels, and regular businesses. But it is different with Mexican and Central American migration. Coming here for them means to work on low wage jobs with no benefits, to be abused in the workplaces, always to live in fear not to be paid. I think this also effects on American attitude towards
Not all migrant farmworkers are undocumented. For example, H-2A is one of many guest worker visa program that is administered through the Immigration and Naturalization Service of the Department of Labor (DOL). The guest visa program offers the US agriculture long term dependence on temporary foreign labor. Foreign workers are also considered easy recruits to fill the tough jobs that US growers say that domestic workers do not want to so. H2A workers are the least regulated of all agricultural workers as they are excluded from the Migrant and Seasonal Worker Protections Act (AWPA) which it creation was intended to address labor issues specific to seasonal agricultural workers. It recruits workers from Mexico with promises of good wages and
At twelve years of age, I awoke to three urgent nocks. Rubbing the sleep from my eyes, I opened the door to be greeted by one of my dad’s friend from work informing me my father had fallen from the ladder picking cherries that morning and was being taken to the hospital. Fear took over my body at the thought of what could have happened to my dad. With only my three other siblings at home and my mom working, we had to wait until my dad got home or my mom. Fortunately nothing too serious happened to my dad that morning. What had happened made me realize the dangers migrant workers face every day they work.
Refugee issue is a global issue mainly due to wars, conflicts or environmental, political, religious and racial reasons (Gibney & Gil, 2010). In recent years, the turmoil triggered by the "Arab Spring" in many countries in West Asia and North Africa causing numerous refugees, so it has once again attracted the attention of people（Grossman, 2017）. People forced to relocate their homes and even renounce their nationality by war or natural disasters are defined as refugee（UNHCR，2017）.The influx of refugees brings cheap labor forces reducing the cost of productions ,and causes the promotion of economic development. In addition, the increasing population leads to an increase in demand which can increase the income of the host countries and the state tax. It can be argued that refugees are unable to benefit the host nations because refugees increase unemployment rate and occupy resources in education. Although it may be true that there are some negative effects caused by refugees, refugees can benefit the host nation in terms of economy and social advancement.
Lest the Americans forget, refugees and immigrants from all over the globe founded the great nation of The United States that is admired and held in high regards by millions. These people left behind an entire life in hopes of gaining safety and stability. They faced harsh obstacles in an attempt to create a better life not only for themselves, but also for their families. In this process, these newcomers were gracious enough to enrich the rather bland American culture by sharing bits and pieces of theirs. They also paved the way for numerous discoveries and advances in the nation’s society Unfortunately, even after the prominent achievements these immigrants bestowed upon the country along with all the difficulties they have had to
The article focused on a very interesting topic which is how owners of migrant labor camps determine who is allowed to see the residents of these facilities. Some instances they keep out unions, organizers, priest, lawyers, and program workers (Sherman and Levy 1971). This way these individuals will not interfere with the workforce of the individuals that own those labor camps. Controlling who is allowed to visit migrant homes is an injustice on the people who reside in those homes. Although this is an old article, this is important because it can be used in the background and touch on historical conditions these workers have faced living in farmworker labor camps, like prisoners and their rights violated.
Essay question: Are temporary labour migration programs ethical? Is there a point at which a temporary migrant ought to be offered permanent membership in the host country?
