Impact of Migration on destination country


Migration has both positive and negative impacts on the destination country.

Advantages
migration pointCheap Labour:
Migrants often do many unskilled jobs for a very little wage. Skilled migrants are also often happy to give their services for little salary.

migration pointSkilled Labour:
Some immigrants are highly skilled and talented, and they contribute to knowledge and production for the well-being of all in that country.

migration pointCultural Diversity:
Immigrants provide the diversity in many places. Diversity helps cultures and traditions to loosen the grip on racism, discrimination and things like that. Diversity helps people learn about other ways of life and what goes on in other places of the world. It brings variety to almost every part of our ways of life. Diversity helps people to better appreciate humanity and human rights in general.

Disadvantages
migration pointJob loss:
Immigrants may also cause pressure on job issues as the locals often lose jobs to incoming workers.

migration point
Discrimination/racism:
Immigration can fuel racism and discrimination. Immigrants who cannot speak the local language or do not behave like the locals often find themselves not accepted in their communities, as people prefer not to have anything to do with them.

migration point
Social/Civil Pressure:
Housing, health, education and many other facilities may suffer from the pressure of excessive use by more people than it was designed to take. This can force prices of such amenities to go high, causing hardship to all.

migration pointBreakdown of culture and traditions:
Traditions and cultures are negatively modified because of diversity. Sometimes healthy ways of lives are lapsed as different people are exposed to different ways of doing things. Sometimes new crime incidents emerge or increase as a result of ‘bad’ people coming in.

migration pointDiseases:
As long as people move from place to place, there is a risk of contagious disease outbreak.
