I am an immigrant too

In iam, our team is multicultural and, because of that the title is ”I am an immigrant too”.

People tend to migrate for several reasons. Some are strained to new places by ‘pull ‘ factors, others find it difficult to remain where they are and migrate because of ‘push’ factors. These have contributed to the recent movement of people in UK but are also the reason why people from UK have emigrated to other countries.

Pull Factors
Migrants are strained progressively to countries such as the UK and Ireland by the following factors:

  • Developed countries, or industrialised city areas within countries, tie labour from countries or areas where incomes are lower.
  • International transport has never been easier and is cheaper than ever, relative to incomes.
  • The telephone and internet make it easier to access information.
  • Decreasing birth rates in developed countries contribute to labour shortages and skills gaps.
  • Extra people are required when there is rapid economic expansion.
  • People are strained to stable democracies where human rights and religious freedoms are more likely to be respected.
  • Many people in other parts of the world speak English.
  • Young people move in order to get better jobs or improve their qualifications, including their language skills. 

Push Factors
Negative factors at home add to the reasons why people feel compelled to move.

  • Lack of prospects for career advancement.
  • Poverty and low incomes.
  • High unemployment rates.
  • Persecution and poor human rights.
  • Internal conflict and war.
  • Natural disasters, climate change and misery.

And you, what is the reason that made  you immigrate?
