The notion that anyone who works hard enough will be rewarded has been made difficult for the individuals that are not defined as white by the social construction of race which comes from society’s beliefs, racism and stereotypes. Being white comes with numerous privileges like higher education and citizenship and other supplementary increased equities that people of color don’t receive. In the video, the narrator states “immigrants were learning that whiteness was more than skin color. It was the privilege of opportunity. And above all, exclusive.” This is a very powerful statement that the narrator makes because firstly, it shows how immigrants who are experiencing a new environment or perhaps experience a culture shock LEARN that color is
Migration policies assign different types of residency and work permits which carry different rights. These may pertain to the duration of the permit and possibility of its renewal, access to the labor market, and the possibility of applying for permanent residency or citizenship. It has been found that immigrants enjoy positive returns to citizenship of the host country (e.g., Steinhardt, 2012; Steinhardt and Wedemeier, 2012; Gathmann and Keller 2014; Bevelander and Pendakur, 2012), implying that more liberal naturalization laws may have a positive impact on immigrants’ labor market
Inward migration is a controversial topic because it can be perceived as both a threat or an opportunity to the country receiving these migrants. Migration, as defined by the Oxford dictionary is the “movement of people to a new area or country in order to find work or better living conditions.” People will migrate if there are improved opportunities in their destination as it is human nature. This relocation will have an impact on the natives. Depending on the perspective, the impact can either be positive or negative or even both. The pros and cons of immigration are consistently up for debate as shown by the Eurobarometer poll, where immigration ranked fourth among 15 societal issues such as crime, environment and security, (Eurobarometer 65, 2007, pg.
They use the privileges granted by the policies as an umbrella for the crime. However, some people pursue the idea that it is conducive to maintain unity and national stability; the privileges which are granted by the policy can consolidate China’s sense of unity. Not only were the minority extremists grateful, but also the support of anti-Chinese Western forces has intensified. This policy, combined with the actual situation and regional autonomy, has increased the gap between Han Chinese and the ethnic minorities. It deliberately emphasizes the nationalization of religious beliefs in the ethnic minority areas, and also encourages narrow nationalism or separatism in ethnic minority areas which has caused them to become more anti-Chinese than ever.
These superstitious rituals and activities can have a positive or a negative impact on one’s life hence, may influence ones behaviour in various ways also affecting the individuals psychological and social state. Positive superstitions are mainly told to reduce anxiety, build confidence to cope up with uncertainty, giving the illusion of control in an uncontrollable situation. Each religion holds a different set of superstitions pertaining to their culture and practices. While the positive superstitions helps individual to cope with uncontrollable situations and give an illusion of control over things that are out of their hands, the negative superstitions hold back individuals from practicing certain habits and prohibit them to do certain activities which may disrupt the coherence of that particular society. While there are many superstitions which have no particular reason to exist such as; cawing of crow- itching of right palm;
“Identities are not as clear or transparent as we think rather they are problematic. Instead of thinking of identity as an already accomplished fact, we should think of it as a product, which is never complete, and is always in process” (Hall 394). The question of identity is always a complicated one, particularly for those who are culturally migrated. Immigrants are those who spend their lives in two worlds; they cannot relate with any of the two worlds where they are living. Due to migration, immigrants’ identities become problematic; they have quest for identity, nationality, shelter and status.
Furthermore, borders and boundaries of a nation state often do not correspond perfectly with each other – especially because the crossing of cultural borders and legal boundaries by migrants disturbs the theoretical division. Transnational migration is about experiencing the border or experiencing the difference. It puts migrants in the condition of always being in-between two places (Gielis 2009:598). Such an experience does not take place only at physical dividing lines but also in other places and situations, as well as in mental and symbolic ways. When migrants cross boundaries they re-establish and renegotiate such boundaries, and thereby shape their own transnational identity
Better education and publicizing of what the job entails, is needed as not many people know what social workers do or how diverse their job is. Social workers should be provided with better safety precautions when dealing with dangerous, difficult or aggressive clients. Legislation must be put in place to stop social workers from being exploited and overworked by employers. More social workers are needed to be recruited in order to have enough workers to stop current workers from being overworked. More courses are needed in more areas of Ireland to make social work an easier accessible career path.
