One of the main arguments against illegal (entering into a country) is that there will be fewer jobs left for the Americans as they demand higher (moneys paid for working) compared to the illegal people (who enter a country) and it is only helpful for the companies, rather than the country as a whole. An argument (against something else) for this is that most of the illegal people (who enter a country) take the jobs Americans do not want. And although many Americans may be (without hope/very upset) for work after the major money-based problem, there are still many who do not want to do labour or low-paid jobs, such as working at a farm. Many illegal people (who enter a country) however, are happy as long as they find work. It is therefore necessary for them to be legalised so that there are enough people within these fields of work.
Although raising their prices is an option it does not necessarily have to go in that route. Business can save money if they increase the wages because they would have less training to do meaning they spend less money on training new employees. Even if businesses raised their prices people would have more money so they could afford to buy the things at the higher prices and there is always the option of price controls to keep things from being too much. Then there is the motivation for advancement. This argument is reasonable in that some people would lack advancement but most would want better jobs as minimum wage paying jobs are not the most decent.
The cons however, are not worth the pros. The lower wage worker is usually working because he or she needs employment to survive (as do most of us). Because there are not many opportunities, the lower wage worker usually has more stress to try to make ends meet. Because they are paid less, they spend less and do not help stimulate the economy. They usually qualify for public assistance, which can drain the economy.
Hirby wrote that “The economy consists of the free flow of money, goods and services as well as the production of such goods and services.” (“ How Does Illegal Immigration Hurt The Economy?” J. Hirby) Illegal immigration can affect economy in quite a negative way because the immigrants work to support loved ones and get paid less than minimum wage, except the money they make does not go to the economy but to their families back home. In the past ten years, illegal immigration has greatly increased from 5-12 million immigrants all over the world. This has definitely affected countries in many areas including, the wages and finances of the immigrants, security threats, and more. As stated before many immigrants come into foreign countries and take jobs from people who actually live in the country and is working way less than minimum wage which brings a negative affect when it comes to paying taxes. Although people may think that illegal immigration is a horrible thing which it is, it can also do some good to countries
A large percentage of Americans are infuriated that we are allowing illegal immigrants to take American jobs. They believe that those jobs should be given to legal American citizens, since they should be our economy’s first priority. Subsequently, since illegal immigrants will work for very low wages, employers have no reason to give American born workers, or any workers for that matter, a higher pay (Collins). These attitudes toward immigrants are undeserved. Most of the jobs that immigrants take are low-paying and not appealing to regular citizens.
Americans still think it is unfair that immigrants get financial benefits when US-born Americans worked hard for generations to earn their pay. As a result, millions of Americans cannot pay the bills, which leads the American economy to suffer more debt. However, America have humanitarian duties to invite immigrants who seek opportunities while protecting its own economy from thieves outside the United States. To state that immigrants do not create positive contribution to the economy is creating a single-centered story about immigrants. Legal immigrants have a desire to create the America dream come alive.
Illegal immigrants are taking our jobs away from citizens. These illegal immigrants don’t have to pay taxes, be on a jury… This is cheating the american system out of a lot of money each year, and making those american citizen who need the money and pay their bills, suffer. As a result of illegal immigrants taking their jobs, they have to move into more affordable conditions, which could mean a small apartment, or moving in with a relative, either way it 's not a way hard working american
Immigrants are poorer, have lower incomes, and qualify for more state and local services and assistance” (Enrique’s Journey 233). Moreover, they think that there will not be an enough opportunity for U.S citizens to find a job or if there is, there will be more job competition in workforce .Generally speaking, those people believe that illegal immigrants are a burden to the United States’ society and U.S government spend millions of dollars of tax payers’ money on illegal immigrants . In Enrique’s Journey, the author explains, “The burden to taxpayers is greatest in immigrant-heavy states such as California. . .
Therefore, helping poverty is a major demand in the country due to a large group of impoverished people, and increase the minimum wage is beneficial to poverty people and also low paid workers. We can see that in the news or in some neighborhood, poverty people don’t have a good live because they can only or even can’t fulfil their basic needs. Increase minimum wage can improve their quality of living, because they have extra money to spend and fulfil their needs. Helping poverty people and increasing their income can absolutely reduce the group size of poverty. It is a good sign in every country, especially the United States, because there are 46.7 million people in poverty and this number had been increased past several years (U.S. Census Bureau, 2015).
These high profit companies are able to cheapen, and mass produce their products because of higher workers from less developed countries. With no laws to protect those natives, companies are not forced to pay a minimum wage or even provide health benefits or even a safe environment for workers these situations are classified as sweat shops. Developing these relationships with less developed countries only increase profit margins for the companies. With companies only wanting more money, more and more Americans are loosing their job and having their pay cut because of companies still having traditional work environments in America having to compete with rivals who do not have to adhere to worker
