New immigrants forced to work on bad jobs
Are there real good jobs available in the Canadian marketplace or the alleged “skill shortage” a lie that is being propagated by Canadian Government to earn good money from immigrants and a ploy to get cheap labor from poor countries and which is further being exploited by greedy immigration agents to make quick buck from hapless persons who are ready to pay their hefty fees through nose.
In any country, the job market and its size is determined by the industry that the country has or the GDP of the country driven by industrial production. There is no notable industry in Canada that can sustain the country and its size. Canada has a surplus budget that is largely financed by incoming dollars through tourism and immigrants.
Most persons complaining against the treatment or the facilities provided to the immigrants tend to forget that Canadian Government is not foolish. Immigrants are one of the largest source of incoming money in Canadian economy, so if the Government sets apart just $22 million a year for modernizing immigration and settlement system, it is just 20% of the earnings. Not to count the benefit that the economy gets as a whole by getting cheap labor.
The Government plans to spend this budget to shorten wait times for immigrants, polish the skills that immigrant has and to help them find good jobs so that they are able to settle down.
Would anybody like to turn a blind eye to the fact that about 25% of the immigrants return to their home country as they fail to get good jobs? Would this bode well for immigration system? At this rate, only the illiterate ones who are not able to settle down in their home country for lack of education or otherwise would rush for immigration. The immigration process should help landed immigrants find a skills-oriented job with pay adequate to meet household expenses; otherwise it is merely an exercise in increasing poverty in Canada and frustration in immigrant families.
When the system allows immigrants in the system, it just encourages people to come and find a job based on an arbitrary list of alleged labor shortages. Some labor shortages are real but others are not thus many immigrants come to Canada only to languish in low skill, low waged jobs. In effect Canada is sustaining and contributing to poverty rates.
If a doctor delivers pizza, the government considers him employed; in fact, he does not work to his potential and is unable to earn wages in keeping with his education and skills. Most newly arrived professionals are forced to accept survival jobs. Most immigrants live in multiple-family houses with several families compressed into a small place in violation of all safety standards.
In the meanwhile, potential immigrants would do well to upgrade their education skills at Canadian standards so as they get white collar jobs before setting up for Canadian shores.
