The Netherlands, unlike many nations in the world, wants and is seeking new immigrants to deal with needs of society for highly skilled workers. As a deputy Justice minister, Nebahat Albayal put it: “we have he need for highly skilled people that we can never produce here in the Netherlands.” Government officials believe their nation must assume a more vigorous stance in competing for workers than the United States and Canada since those countries who attract the best and brightest will eventually obtain financial rewards.
In reality, immigrants are powerful forces for change in nations. A list of immigrants to America reveals individuals who created not merely companies, but entire industries. And, many of these leaders arrived in the United States WITHOUT skills.
