I don't quite get the livelihood argument. Workers compete for existing jobs, but talent may lead to the creation of new jobs. That's why most if not all countries put a premium on educational background and professional qualifications for PRs/immigrants. For example, look at the eligibility guidelines for an employment-based US green card here: http://uscis.gov/graphics/howdoi/ImmStatEmp.htmOriginally Posted by ennui
I heard virtually the same rant last week from an American colleague, whining about how undeserving Asian students took away places at American universities from the locals.these policies are so prevalent that i don't even wanna get started on those obscene education grants given out or the preferential treatment NUS is giving to those foreign 'scholars'.
