Migration: Skills and the job market

Migration: Skills and the job marketMigration is today, as it has always been, a hot topic of debate. Often fuelled by the media, it is a subject which is bombarded with statistics and percentages to prove and disprove a variety of arguments which essentially either support of refute the process of migration.
