The immigration increases the number of skilled and educated people in the country and this will help I the development of the country. Most of the immigrants are those people that have high education levels. This means that skilled people’s number goes up in a country. It happens that most of the natives do not have high level of skills and education. As a result of immigration, the educated and uneducated number of people start balancing. The educated and uneducated balance means there occurs a balance in jobs where both groups do different jobs.
Immigration promotes job specialization. Since the population is high and no lack of labor, there develops job grades. Here, jobs will be divided into those that can be handled by educated people, those for medium educated and those for people with no education at all.
Another advantage of immigration is that immigrants are always willing to move from one place to another in search of jobs. The native people normally hesitate to move from one place to another. But immigrants are always willing to move to anywhere as long as the jobs. This means that they will move from places that have low supply of jobs to places with high supply of jobs The immigrants hence play a role in balancing the population and supply of jobs in different places hence slow down wage decline. By doing this, they will lead to economic growth across the country. This means that the immigrants will contribute a lot in stabilizing the country’s economy.
