As companies expand into international business I feel foreign immigrants should be considered as part of a firm’s workforce strategy. Hiring immigrants can help reduce the culture gap when conducting international business and increase companies knowledge of other countries cultures. Often times the lack of knowledge or sensitivity to culture differences can result in mistakes in both business practices and policies and personal interactions (Tarique, Briscoe, and Schuler 121). As with immigrants, host-country hires (employees who work in the foreign subsidiary and are citizens of the country where the foreign subsidiary is located) and third-country hires (citizens of a country other than the parent country or the country of the subsidiary to work in one of its foreign subsidiaries) are all employees that face culture issues to some degree, such as, lack of knowledge of parent company polices and practices, language barriers, lack of skills or knowledge, low loyalty, may not be accepted by locals (Tarique, Briscoe, and Schuler
Migration policies affect the economic incorporation of immigrants in three main ways. First, migration policy can affect the economic integration of immigrants through the distribution of the various visa types by means of which immigrants enter the host country. Some countries use point-based systems to select immigrants on the basis of human capital or skills, and others use quota systems to recruit less skilled workers for specific jobs or economic sectors. Both systems imply some level of selectivity of the immigrant workforce. However, the admission of migrants via ‘noneconomic’ immigration grounds (mainly family reunification, refugees and students) also shapes the migrant workforce, as these categories of immigrants are generally entitled
Immigration is an attribute of economic and social life throughout many nations, but the portrayal of immigrant residents pretty much varies. Disregarding its origin, immigration has significant effects on our communities, and these can be arguable. The economic influence of immigration is not an exception. Moreover, the United States of America take a leading position as the world’s main destination for immigrants. It is first necessary to explain that immigration enhances the U.S. economy, improves labor productivity, incentives innovation, assists consumers by maintaining low prices, and refines US culture and society.
Every immigrations is mainly because they want to move from a poor to a richer country. However, illegal immigrants tend not to be the poorest within their population. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration, u.d.) There a many reasons why people leave their home country. Immigrants are motivated to leave because of political issues, family re-unification, escaping conflict or natural disaster.
In this theory, it explained that individual rational choice is the deciding factor for the people to migrate. Individuals choose to migrate after they had calculated the benefit of migrating and usually they expect a positive return from their movement. According to this theory, people move to places where they can be more productive. (need more) Dual labor market theory Dual labor market theory explains that international migration is caused by the demand for labor in the modern industrial societies such as the developed countries. One of the major supporters of this theory is Piore (1979) in which he argues that international migration is caused by the prevailing demand for immigrant labor that is essential to the economic structure of developed nation.
Nowadays, people migrate because of social, environmental and political factors as well as for economic and cultural purposes. Through migration, economic growth can be sustained, job vacancies can be filled and immigrants bring innovation. But every action we take has negative consequences and these are: migrants may be exploited, there may be integration difficulties, increase in population and workers will work for low pay because this will allow their employers to ignore their productivity. It is clear that immigration can be
Unlike the neo-classical migration theory, the new economy of labour migration argues that the migration decision is not only for an individual but for his whole family, with the main reason for his migration not only to maximize income but also to minimize possible risks, insecurity or relative poverty. The Palace (2014, page 20) to illustrate labour migration shows an example of a rural family that does not have enough income to modernize and lives in an area where the insurance and credit market is insufficiently developed. For this reason, he sends one of his educated members to the city. He regularly sends money to the family, allowing him to raise his overall income and minimize risk (through diversification of resources). Another difference of this theory from the neoclassical theory of migration is the way of assessing poverty.

Unemployment and poverty are major socio economic problems for an area and they may even lead to crime as often when people don’t have money to support their basic needs they resort to crime to obtain some money and so job creation would assist in eliminating these problems. • The development of roads and other transportation methods allows people to actively and conveniently travel between many different
One of those main advantages is about to provide more working opportunity to the local unemployed workforce. While it is undeniable that there is a numerous number of out-of-work employees, tourism will be a good tool to meet their demands of looking for new jobs. As in this kind of industry, tourism is divided into many specific areas which are ranging from food and beverage, accommodation to travel trade or events and conferences and so on, thanks to it, more and more job vacancy will occur to solve the unemployment equilibrium problem and help in increasing the average standard of living of people.
