To discover and analyze the factors which affect the immigrants’ job matching and earnings, employment discrimination is inevitable to be considered. Raluca Buzdugan and Shiva S. Halli (2009) introduced the “dual labor market theories” for labor market discrimination. In brief, labor market could be divided into two parts – primary labor market (good job) and secondary labour market (bad job) in this theory. It claims that dual labor market theories hinder the talented worker to access primary labor market as a result of the status of immigrants. Moreover, they indicated foreign degrees had a lower economic return than the same level of domestic degrees. Canadian credential as criterion takes a more important role than educational degree in determining employee’s ability.

In the essay “My Canada” by Anita Rau Badami she said this about Canada “the country had been doing a slow dance for me over the nine years that I had lived here, showing me tantalizing little bits of itself every now and then.” The quote by Badami says that Canada has little charms spread throughout the country, such as the vastness and natural beauty of Lake Louise and all National Parks.

This opinion has a number of errors to it. In this regard, it does not take into account the rise in labor demand that occurs due to the immigration (Borjas, 23).

Immigration has been and will continue to happen all around the world. There are so many reasons for people who come from different countries and ethnicities to move from country to country.

Moreover, the work force, like the economy, is not fixed and static. The U.S economy itself is dynamic, fluctuating, and creates hundreds of new jobs every
