Imagine if it’s not a job. Imagine if it’s a welfare. So government says, anyone that stand idly in Madison square will be paid $5 per hour. There is no productivity. Government is just insane giving money away. Will immigrants coming reduce that welfare pie? Yes.
Many jobs are essentially welfare. The salary does not justify the productivity.
I think immigration will reduce job but mainly only if the job itself is essentially implicit welfare.
Many jobs are not real job with normal salary. Minimum wage, for example, inflate salary for some job. Some jobs are created by stimulus. So those jobs are limited. More people taking that job means there goes the job.
Western countries tend to have rules favoring oppressed people in immigration. Oppressive countries are usually poor. Many people, currently, want to emigrate to western world. Even if they earn the same amount of money in their own country, many people are fed up with injustice they fear all the time.
So why not accept oppressed people from Islamic countries? There are many people that want to convert their religion but cannot. There are women that want to be porn stars. Why not accept them all? Jews accept Druze and those Druzes fight well on Israel sides. Why not accept Ahmadiyah members?
What I mean by trafficking is consensual trafficking. But as you see from the debate above, some feminists insist that trafficking are made illegal despite consent.
My understanding is that ugly feminists simply do not want to compete with cheaper (and often prettier) women from poorer countries. Moreover, poor males do not want their prettiest girls move to richer countries. It’s like smuggling or immigration or globalization in general. Those who don’t sale don’t want to compete overseas.
It seems that trafficking means non consensual for many (while the consensual one is probably called immigration).
