Title The Big Question: Who needs migrant workers?
Description
  • For some they are the backbone of the economy; for others they are the biggest threat. It seems migrants are everywhere. Some countries encourage migration, while others have their borders shut. Yet hundreds of millions of people have left their country to live somewhere else. Millions start at the bottom of the ladder and work their way up, others have more attractive, specialised skills. So why do migrants get such a bad press? Are they undermining locals by taking away their jobs? Or are they an asset? The Big Question: Who needs migrant workers?
