Chapter 9: Will new types of jobs change migration?

The Impact on Labour Markets and Welfare States

Bent Greve

Extract

The outsourcing of jobs to lower wage level countries has been one trend in many advanced welfare states. Another trend in recent years has been the significant movement of migrants and refugees around the world, especially towards wealthier societies. The movement of refugees might not be changed by new technology; however, migration towards especially low-skilled jobs might be reduced because there will be fewer of these jobs available. This, combined with the fact that many jobs could be performed at home via the internet, means that migration will perhaps be less significant than it used to be. This chapter will discuss possible trends and consequences thereof.
