The Pendatang Cometh #2: Hard Work and Economics

They take our jobs, they eat into our social welfare, they push our wages down. These are the accusations levelled against immigrants in almost any country, but we hear it often in the United States too. Continuing our exploration of immigration in the US, this week it’s about the economics of migration, and the hard work it takes to live some semblance of the American dream. This episode was originally broadcasted on 13th October 2015.
