dc.description.abstractInternational migration is driven not only by push factors at countries of origin but also by pull factors at countries of destination. Immigrant workers often come to fill labour market gaps in destination countries, whether in jobs that native workers are no longer willing to take or filling in shortages in specific skills or sectors that are rapidly expanding and where the domestic labour force cannot meet the demand of the labour market. The fact that migrants fill in shortages in the labour market does not necessarily mean that they are good for the host country's economy.en
