Comment: Immigration Raises Wages
The Economist reports on a study that measures the impact of immigration on wages by comparing the data from all the OECD countries. The report finds that immigration raises the wages of low-income native workers.

"Explaining these results is straightforward. OECD immigrants are more educated than non-migrant natives. And educated people are job-creating. As a result, higher immigration leads to higher job creation - resulting in better wages for people further down the job ladder. Less educated workers in countries that favour more educated immigrants - like Australia and Canada - experience larger wage gains."
There are so many myths and fantasies about immigration being peddled by the anti-immigrationists, that studies such as this one are a welcome antidote. Share your thoughts by writing to
