Details

Statistics on occupations filled by guestworkers in Canada show that some labour shortages are less acute,
and researchers have identified downward pressures on work conditions. To minimize their negative impact on labour markets, States need to restructure temporary work regimes as ‘2-step immigration programs facilitating just-in-time integration and circular migration’.
