Immigration to France: an economic benefit


Published on : 02/14/2020 – 19:50

Many people in Europe are showing signs of concern about what is perceived to be mass immigration. Flows of refugees from Syria due to the civil war taking place there, the boats that land on European coasts the African migrants who escaped shipwreck and death during the crossing of the Mediterranean, fueled the speeches populists based on fear of the other.

One of the driving forces behind these speeches is the fear by the citizens of being deprived of their jobs by the newcomers, of seeing the state budget devoted to others than to those who have it. fed on their taxes. This is true in Germany, Austria, in Eastern European countries but also in France. Hence our choice, we question the place occupied by immigrants in the French working world and in its economy. Are immigrants a burden, a burden on the economy, competition for employees, these are the questions that we will discuss with the three guests here.
