ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the difficulties of moving from country to country. It says that few countries accept large numbers of immigrants, and they have become increasingly selective about who enters. It adds that while barriers to trade across borders have lessened, limitations to the movement of people have grown. According to the United Nations Development Programme, those who are highly educated are often recruited by rich countries, but oftentimes much is left to be desired for the treatment of low-skilled workers. Getting into Canada is discussed.
