Greater than 68 percent of migrants are hired throughout OECD countries
- Australia is 1 of the top OECD nations that takes in temporary employ immigrants.
- A new report from the OECD found that the number of immigrants to OECD nations rose two % in 2k18, as compared to 2k17.
- The number of temporary employ immigrants also rose to 4.9 million in 2k17, as compared to 4.4 million in 2k16.
Immigration to OECD nations has increased.
A latest report from the (OECD) Organisation for Economic Development found that the number of immigrants to Organisation for Economic Development OECD nation increased to about 5.3 million in 2k18, a 2 percent increase from 2k17.
The OECD ( Organisation for Economic Development ) is made up of 36 member nations around North & South America, Europe & Asia-Pacific that work together on a range of social, economic and environmental issues.
The OECD ( Organisation for Economic Development ) International Immigration Outlook 2k19 report noted that the US remains the huge single location nation for immigrants, followed by Germany.
But when it came to asylum applications to OECD ( Organisation for Economic Development ) nation , the numbers decreased significantly. Applications went down to 1.09 million in 2k18, 35 percent few than the record high of 1.65 million requests sent through in both 2k15 & 2k16.
The report also found that temporary employ immigration increased significantly in 2k17, reaching 4.9 million, compared to 4.4 million in 2k16. It is the highest level since the ( Organisation for Economic Development ) OECD began reporting the numbers more than ten years ago.
Australia was one of the top ten ( Organisation for Economic Development ) OECD nations that is given temporary employers in 2k17, with 400,000 employers coming to Australia. At the top of the list was Poland, followed by the USA, Germany & then Australia. The top ten countries took in 3.9 million temporary employer immigrants in 2k17, 80 percent of the ( Organisation for Economic Development ) OECD’s total.
“Improvements in the employment of recent migrants have been stronger in nations where employment rates were relatively more , such as Ireland or the United Kingdom,” report said.
The organisation found that temporary immigrants make a “sizeable” contribution to OECD ( Organisation for Economic Development ) nations . The report noted that on average, more than 68 percent of immigrants are employed across OECD ( Organisation for Economic Development ) countries & their unemployment rate is below nine %.
“The significant rise in temporary employ immigration is a sign of the dynamism in ( Organisation for Economic Development ) OECD employers markets but also of their integration,” OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría, said at the launch in Paris. “Temporary immigrants bring skills and competences that are needed by workers .”
In 2k18, Australia displayed reforms to the temporary visa programs. It launched the Temporary Skill Shortage visa – which replaced the 457 Temporary work skilled visa – to allow workers to sponsor a talented worker if they can’t find a local people for the role.
The Refugee Council of Australia noted the economic impact of immigration flows through into every situation of Australia’s economy.
“It has a profound positive impact not just on population growth, but also on employer participation & employment, on wages & sallery, on our national skills base and on net productivity,” Migration Council of Australia Policy Analyst Henry Sherrell said in statement.
For example, a 2k18 Australian government report into migration cited the International Monetary Fund, which estimated that “Australia’s current immigration program will add between 0.1 & 1 % points to yearly average GDP growth” between 2k20 to 2k50.
And while politicians, such as migration minister Peter Dutton, have stoked fears that temporary employer will take the jobs of locals in Australia, a 2k19 report from the (CEDA) Committee for Economic Development of Australia noted that “recent waves of immigrants have not had an adverse impact on the wages or jobs of regional employers.”
But despite the positive impacts of immigrants & temporary workers in Australia, there seems a reluctance to allow them to enter the nation in present times compared to in 2k17. In Mar, 2k19, the government cut its yearly migration cap from 190,000 to 160,000.
