THREE APPROACHES TO IMMIGRATION OF SKILLED WORKERS

David Hart, associate professor of public policy and a board member of the nonprofit think tank Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, believes that there are three broad approaches to the issue of immigration of highly skilled workers that the wealthiest countries take:

• Australia, Canada and New Zealand see these immigrants as a source of economic growth and implement their policy in favor of immigration of highly skilled workers through a point system.

• The United States and the United Kingdom have historically attracted immigrants of all skill levels.

• France, Germany and Japan tend to view highly skilled immigrants more as threats to native workers than as positive additions; however, leaders in those countries more recently have tried to change both public perception and policy.
