That proves, Illegal Immigrants do help the U.S. grow economically infect the he states that Undocumented Immigrants tent to contribute more money in taxes than they consume in services it proves that the jobs illegal immigrants take is jobs that legal citizens do not want, because they are low-wage jobs. And it also proves that undocumented immigrants consume more than legal citizens. But i Understand does who are against and say that illegal immigrants are actually hurting the U.S. economy instead of helping, because of their low-wages they pay less than a normal or high-wage person would pay for their taxes, so that don't do any difference to the economy. Yes I agree, but what they are forgetting is how many immigrants there is in the U.S. According to the "New York times" the number is around 11.7 million of illegal immigrants living in the United States and if the majority of this immigrants work on a low-wage job they do contribute to the economy.
Businessmen will take advantage of this and pay them significantly lower wages. Cheap labor negatively affects other workers. Studies show that immigrants push down wages and may cause other workers to leave a certain industry.
Illegal immigration also leads to the reduction in job opportunities for American citizens. When the illegal immigrants come into the country, they need a means of survival. As a result, they compete with American citizens for the available job opportunities. Some illegal immigrants are relatively more qualified than American citizens; as a result, they are given first priority at the various companies in the country (Anderson, 2010). Similarly, some companies employ illegal immigrant workers to avoid following the legitimate employment procedure, which is longer and more expensive for the employer.
One of the arguments made is that the immigrants take the jobs of native born U.S. citizens and limits the opportunities and wages presented to the native people. These claims have been made due to the fact that many immigrants enter the country willing to work for lower wages than most native people and, therefore, obtain jobs. Some other claims include that immigrants create a depreciation and deficit in the economy. It has also been said that immigrants have placed major strains on government spending because of financial help that is initially presented to many immigrants when they enter the country. Those who argue against immigration claim that immigrants normally take advantage of welfare opportunities, taking these expenditures away native people and depleting the economy of the U.S.
If the sweatshops were to shut down many people would lose their jobs, and therefore have no source of income. This may lead people to steal and prostitution as well. this article is suggesting that sweatshops will better the economy by giving people a better job than what they may have had. Due to this the companies contracting with sweatshops are not acting wrong in any way. This was a deductive article it had a lot of good examples to show how sweatshops are beneficial to third world countries.
Frankly, most do not. Immigration can be looked at through two different sets of eyes, from one person?s point of view, they may see immigration as being a horrible attribute to obtain because they would say how all the immigrants are taking jobs U.S citizens might need and they may think that I immigrants are over populating the United States. Through someone else?s eyes immigration can be looked at as a good thing because immigrants tend to take jobs the average American may not want. Both point of views contain very good points but still make it difficult to decide if immigration should become legalized or stay illegal without the proper paper work.
Illegal immigrants are able to accomplish this by working for lower wages and without some of the benefits demanded by American workers. The bulk of the impact illegal immigrants have on the economy happens mainly on labor force workers. The impact is more negative on the lower end of the wage scale because illegal immigrants can work for lower wages less than minimum wage. They work tax free as non-citizens. This works to steep the job market with cheaper and readily available labor.
According to a recent survey, 51% of Americans believe illegals are taking away jobs from Americans and lowering wages (Undocumented Immigrants Taking Jobs From US Citizens? Most Americans Believe Immigration Is Bad For Economy). So let’s examine what jobs illegals predominately occupy. Illegal immigrants work in a variety of professions in the United States, but mainly in blue collar jobs. Illegals chiefly work in low-skilled, low-wage jobs, which are labor intensive, such as, farming, fishing, and forestry.
If jobs were brought back to America that would allow more people to spend money on various things building... ... middle of paper ... ...s to buy products at a lower price but is it worth it in the end. More people are unemployed and they cannot buy the products and our economy is hurting from it. It looks good when a product is cheaper it attracts more customers but another thing is the quality. If products are created here they may be created with more quality as employees will actually spend more time as they will take pride in creating them as their friends and family will use them. When people create them foreign they do not know who’s going to use them and their getting paid near nothing.
With the vast number of uneducated illegal immigrants flooding the border they are not taking the good paying jobs everyone has been so worried about, but filling in the gaps of the low paying jobs in America. In a free market society, like here in America, wages for workers are set by supply and demand. If a business cannot attract the number of workers it needs, that company must raise its pay to bring in the employees. The problem is that you do not have to raise the pay if you have a flood of uneducated legal and illegal immigrants coming into the country that will work for low wages.
