In addition, having additional skills and receiving bonuses is good motivation for other workers. Most people in the United States do not speak or write a second language. However, if they know that salary depends of being bilingual they will work hard and learn foreign language. In addition, knowing a second language is important to many companies. Americans companies are looking for workers with bilingual skills because of growing immigrant population in the United States and because they are doing more business in foreign countries.
Immigrants strengthen the economy Undocumented immigrants not only help the economic growth of the United States but it also fulfills the needs of these individual financially as well as their families back in their countries. The tremendous amount of immigrant that arrive to the United States see the country as the land of opportunities for there families. Many of these families that migrate to the United States come from third world countries like Central America in which there is no type of progression or innovation because of the poverty, crime, lack of education and opportunities. Once arriving to the United States many immigrants are in search of jobs to support themselves and their families back home. They also come in pursue of giving a better educational opportunities to their young children.
The raise in GDP doesn’t come mainly from taxes, because even if they are legal immigrants (which are not the case usually) they have minimal income. The raise in GDP comes mainly from the production that those workers manufacture. Immigrants are the lower solid base of every industry. Another plus for the economy is that those people, who migrate, are highly motivated to succeed and this makes them better employees. They have no one behind their backs, so they know every single mistake could be hurtful for their job position.
People on the other side of this argument claim that immigrants help by taking unwanted jobs with very little pay, and in doing that they are helping keep the prices of domestic goods down across the country. Can immigration be really called a problem? It is likely that most people would call immigration a major problem. Even though immigrants take the lowest of domestic jobs and it is agreed that too much money is being spent to thwart illegals from trying to come into the country, immigration ultimately helps the economy because immigrants take undesirable jobs and there is no statistical evidence that immigration is harming our country in any way. In fact the opposite is the truth; there is evidence that immigration helps the economy in boosting the amount of jobs and that wages are altered in a positive way for everybody who works legally.
The United States was facing hard times in the jobs aspect. The poor were getting poorer and the rich kept getting richer. The poor people needed a way to make money, but jobs were scarce during these times. The opening of factories and maintenance facilities allowed for new jobs to open up, in large quantities. The inventions of many new tools, such as the lightbulb, the telephone, and the railroad system allowed for the Americans lives to be easier.
This stimulus package did greatly for China’s growth as its real GDP was at 10% in 2010 and 9.2% in 2011. The stimulus package was used to invest in private and public spending on infrastructure as well as direct investment in Chinese industries. This shows that China wasn’t affected by the ripples of the GFC unlike smaller countries such as Australia. The impact of globalisation in China has helped China maintain a growth of real GDP between 8% to 10%, making it the fourth largest economy in the world, and on purchasing power parity (PPP), it is the second largest economy in the world, after USA.
Despite having to pick up their life and leave, the immigrants came in by millions to the United States in the late 19th century and 21st century to build better lives for their families economically, religiously, and educationally. In the 19th century, the United States was an economic boom. Many Chinese came to America for the gold rush in California. They did not believe America was a new home, but a place to work and return to their families rich. Many were turned down at an immigration station: Angel Island, while others were pushed out of finding gold and forced to work degrading jobs.
There is a failure to realise that long term better economic welfare also means general higher standards of living, as people have enough money to buy everything they need and some of what they want, competition is rife so drives quality up and prices down, and the government are able to take in more taxes from firms who are much healthier financially. This mass employment may lead to more jobs, but the workers themselves or the way they’re used is hugely inefficient. Another reason that labour production in the UK is so low is the lack of competition. There is a strong body of evidence that competition enhances productivity. So, with a lack of one there is a lack of the other.
It may not surprise people but, it’s not only teenagers that work at these minimum wage paying jobs, there are also many adults that are trying to make a living and are forced to work minimum wage jobs. I am sure they would appreciate a raise, but I believe leaving the minimum wage where its at just forces adults who have little to no skills or education, to go back to school to get the knowledge they need for a career in order to have a more comfortable future. When the minimum wage is raised, businesses have to raise the price on whatever products or services they offer, to offset the loss of profits from having to pay the employees more money. With products more expensive, consumers
Most people immigrants who are undocumented don’t pay taxes because they are paid under the table. Edward P. Lazear, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, stated, “Immigrants not only help fuel the Nation’s economic growth, but also have an overall positive effect on the income of native-born workers”. Immigrants are a critical part of the workforce (1 in 7 workers) and contribute to productivity growth and technological advancement. Without the immigrants, we would have a decline in labor force of 3 to 4 percent, we could not have grown nearly as much as we did in the ‘90s and in the last few years our growth would have been slower. Edward Lazear also says that immigrants are more likely to be entrepreneurs than native-born U.S. citizens.
