Job Migration - Impact of Job Migration

Impact of Job Migration

Job migration must not lead to a rise in unemployment, if national labour markets are flexible enough. Whether the native population can expect gains or losses from immigration depends, among other things, on the size and the structure of the immigration flow and the labour market institutions in the receiving countries (i.e. wage flexibility). Most existing empirical studies on the impact of immigrants on the wage and employment of natives find only small negative effects. In some cases the effects are even positive.http://www.iza.org/en/webcontent/publications/reports/report_pdfs/iza_report_03.pdf Job migration is often accompanied by a difficult transition to new jobs and new locations requiring new training and lowered living standards, although not for everyone. Job migration can help a persons salary increase.
