Despite being one of the smallest countries of the world, Lebanon ranks among the top when it comes to ethical and cultural mixture. Threw history, Lebanon was the destination for several migrants that were forced to leave their beloved country due to circumstances that were beyond their control. Nevertheless, Lebanon has repeatedly opened its borders to shelter those refugees. Ranging from the Armenians that were terrified by the ottoman's intolerance in the early 1900s, to the Palestinians that were forced to leave Palestine by the Israelis back in the 1950s, and up until nowadays with the Syrians that are escaping from the brutality of the regime, Lebanon has become a Mosaic of ethnicity and culture. Refugee immigration constitutes a subdivision of a larger entity called immigration. Plainly, immigration is the exodus or flux of foreigners into a country. In this study we will be considering another subdivision of immigration, we will be considering immigration as the flux of the labor force. Though it might not be the case for the majority of Syrians, but the war that is ravaging Syria is not the main reason behind the immigration of Syrians in Lebanon. The truth is that Syrian labor workers migrated to Lebanon long before the start of the revolution. Indeed, despite the fact that Lebanon houses thousands of unlucky refugees, it is also the destination for a multitude of labor workers ranging from the Far East to Africa with the Philippian and Ethiopian maids respectively.

- Many wage studies suggest that immigrant workers are imperfectly substitutable for native-born workers who have similar educational attainment and experience. Relying on U.S. Census and ACS data, I ask, to what degree do language skills drive this. I suggest that immigrants who arrive to the United States at young ages, both have stronger English skills and exhibit greater substitutability for native-born workers than immigrants who arrived later. Similarly, immigrants with poor English skills will be more responsive to the supply of immigrants and their relative wages will suffer more than English-speaking immigrants....

- The slaughtering, processing, and packaging of meat has long been associated with a high incidence of accidents, injuries and illnesses.

- Immigrant Workers in Phoenix Before the sun even rises in Phoenix, out of the closing shadows of night, dark and quiet silhouettes begin to appear. They are the silhouettes of working men who rise before the sun rises, each with the hope of obtaining work and earning money to help support their families. These men are usually assumed to be immigrants without the proper paperwork to work in the United States. They are also better known as day laborers. These so-called “day laborers” congregate on street corners or in the parking lots of builders’ stores awaiting the arrival of employers who will hire them for a day’s work....

- The United States cannot afford to lose the economic gains that come from immigrant labor. The economy would be suffering a greater loss if it weren’t for immigrants and their labor contributions, especially during the 2008 U.S. recession. The U.S. economy would most likely worsen if it weren’t for the strong labor force immigrants have provided this country. Despite the mostly negative views native-born Americans have towards immigrants and the economy, their strong representation in the labor forces continues today....

- As the airbus 300 made its final approach along San Francisco international airport, I saw the Golden Gate Bridge sitting on its splendor lit by the rising sun. I then closed my eyes and said to myself “I am finally here.” Thus, my journey in search of a better life began. A few minutes later I was off the plane and was already making my way to the customs and immigration check point.

- Ian McEwan's Enduring Love Evident throughout the entire plot of ‘Enduring Love’, Ian McEwan fuses three different genres: love story, detective story and thriller. Each genre I believe has a set of expectations that captures the reader urging them to read on, for example a thriller genre would stereotypically be led by a fast, tense pace with characters easily identifiable as ‘goodies’ and ‘baddies’. Different, fresh and ‘novel’ McEwan establishes his break up of typical genres as he mixes the elements of the three main genres and purposely doesn’t stick to their rigid framework that many authors swear by....
