The Effects of Immigration in America
The Effects of Immigration in America of the labor market, if there were no immigrants, there would be no labor at the age of 35 in the United States as now the American society is aging. What is more, the majority of immigrants is employed in the fields of industrial production, trade, construction, service, and entertainment industries. For several reasons, the proportion of immigrants is particularly weighty in the field of engineering, medicine, information technology, and physics. For example, in the 1960s, American medical schools did not prepare a sufficient number of specialists. In this connection, the U.S. government gave special immigration privileges to doctors and nurses from Korea, so that they moved to the United States. In some cases, the government even pays for resettlement in the United States for people from Korea. It is believed that if immigrants leave the U.S. high-tech center Silicon Valley, it will simply cease to exist. The contribution of immigrants to the economy lies in the fact that they are working hard. Immigrants from other countries are working on average 10% more than the locals. In addition, migrants and immigrants tend to be much less likely to violate local laws than the local residents, as well as being subjected to such vices as alcoholism or drug addiction. Immigrants also possess a great potential to update the population of the United States. According to the UN, the USA is one of the 13 industrialized countries which critically need the inflow of fresh blood as its native population is rapidly aging. According to UN forecasts, the population of the United States will increase from 280 million to 350 million people in a half of a century. Clearly, the history of the American immigration faced a lot of moments with harsh measures. However, nowadays some policies are altered in a way to support the country and its citizens. As it was stated on the inscription on the Statue of Liberty, America needs to host new and new generation in order to help those who need it.
