The costs are clear, but not talked about. The benefits are vague, and praised despite a lack of evidence. If we expect democracy to work, people need to be educated on the costs and benefits involved in a decision. The media avoids this debate. Or worse, the debate is struck down.
Most of all, what we see is that taking in migrants will not solve the problems of European governments. It will not pay for the pensions. It will not save the welfare state. The opposite takes place. There is greater burden on welfare payments, and a greater unemployment.
By simply taking in more people, and having a growing population, GDP will likely grow too. However, GDP has its limits with regards to usefulness. A growing GDP will not suffice if welfare payments are rising faster.
Think about this, with the increase in advanced working environments concerning high tech equipment, why would the US bring in people who on average have a 10th grade education into our country. This is why the merit based immigration system that President Trump want’s to implement for the betterment of our country.
The author states “endangers the welfare state“ and “It will not save the welfare state.“ lol ok 🤪
I agree with the effects and costs, in this country and others. But instead of limiting or restricting the right to travel freely, the author does not call for an end to the root problem:
END welfare/free handouts. Then people will HAVE to work. And for those who legitimately can’t work, there are programs to assist.
As far as education… because of Common Core (another fed ed problem), we are now ranked 17th in the world.
Not first, not fifth, not tenth, not fifteenth. We are ranked 17th in the world in education.
And I’ll bet a buck their 10th grade is our college equivalent.
Are you ok with that “merit based system”, OPS and Trump?
Oh, btw, if you see that 20 year old chick with the 5 kids from 3 or 4 different fathers (waiting on the other paternity test) pushing the buggy full of pop, chips and snacks, tell her PAF sent you to have a talk with her. And let her know that in order to learn, she has to actually read. Which involves turning off MSFoxBS.
And then tell her that because of “the increase in advanced working environments concerning high tech equipment”, it shouldn’t be too hard to apply for that job. She does understand English, right?
