Sari Pekkala Kerr, William Kerr, William Lincoln, 16 March 2014



Skilled immigration is of great importance to the US, representing 16% of US workers with a bachelor’s degree, and 29% of the growth of this labour force over the period 1995-2008. Presently, proponents for increased skilled immigration argue that it supports economic growth, and some have gone so far as to say that the alternative would be paramount to ‘national suicide’.
