 Public debate on immigration has increasingly focused on the ageing welfare state amid concerns that unskilled immigrants are a fiscal burden as recipients of the generous welfare state. Indeed, under free labour mobility the fiscal strength of the welfare-state institutions is severely undermined. A moment's glance at the data would suggest that countries with more generous welfare systems also have relatively more unskilled immigrants.
