Farm workers’challenge: You can have our jobs - Business - US business

Farm workers are tired of being blamed by politicians and anti-immigrant activists for taking work that should go to Americans and dragging down the economy, said Arturo Rodriguez, the president of the United Farm Workers of America. So the group is encouraging the unemployed — and any Washington pundits or anti-immigrant activists who want to join them — to apply for the some of thousands of agricultural jobs being posted with state agencies as harvest season begins. All applicants need to do is fill out an online form under the banner "I want to be a farm worker" at, and experienced field hands will train them and connect them to farms.

These cross-border flows have led to concerns in immigrant-receiving countries about the effects of migration on labour markets and welfare states.

Moi, Française vivant dans un pays musulman

C’est bizarre parce qu’avant de vivre au Maroc (cela fait un peu plus d’un an et demi que je réside à Casablanca), l’Occident était un concept qui ne me parlait pas réellement. Je me serais volontiers présentée comme une Marseillaise, une Française, une Européenne mais pas du tout comme une occidentale. Le fait est que lorsqu’on vous perçoit comme une identité figée vous avez tendance à vous renfermer sur cette identité supposée.

The Economics of Immigration Reform

Most Americans agree that our immigration system is flawed, but there remains a lack of understanding about the real effects that new immigrants have on wages, jobs, budgets, and the U.S. economy in general.

I have a plan that will raise wages, lower prices, increase the nation's stock of scientists and engineers, and maybe even create the next Google.
