$24.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Government policy with respect to managed migration has concentrated on attracting high‐skilled workers, as OECD countries vie to attract the most highly educated professionals in key industries. Labour market shortages, however, are also appearing in many lesser skilled jobs. Rising educational levels and shrinking numbers of young people mean in practice that there are fewer native‐born people available and willing to perform these low‐wage jobs in many OECD countries. In many countries, the demand for workers for low‐skilled jobs has been met partly through migration. Indeed, immigrants have already been playing a significant role in meeting the demand for workers for such jobs.
