On the same day that reporter Jeffrey Kaye visited the Tondo hospital in northwest Manila, members of an employees association wearing hospital uniforms rallied in the outside courtyard demanding pay raises. The nurses at the hospital took home about $261 a month, while in the United States, nurses earn, on average, more than fifteen times that rate of pay. No wonder so ma ...more

Somewhat interesting book about immigration. Includes stories from around the world, definitely not US only! Even though the US is home to more migrants than any other country, more than 60 others have higher percentages of foreigners.

The law of supply and demand dictates that labor will always be mobile. Businesses can pay migrant laborers less money, but the laborers earn more than they would back home. Their demand rises and falls with the economy but the overall appetite in the developed wor
Definitely a topic worth addressing over and over again with our globally interconnected society. There are some sharp insights in this book, but on the whole I found it skewed more US/Mexico-centric than I would have liked. Also fell short on the proposal of alternatives to the status quo. On the whole, a decent overview of the topic of migration and business, but lacking nuance in key aspects that factor into the movement of people and money across borders.
Powerful investigation of a complex and polarizing subject. Well worth a read for anyone interested in a rational discussion on immigration and the forces behind why people risk their lives to move where the work is.
Given the focus on immigration in Arizona and the US at this time, some valuable insights to the role of migrant workers globally. Well written. Worth the read.
great up-do-date account of migration issues and Kaye takes them to more of the root causes. Capitalists beware.

Unfortunately profits are more important for people.
The author posits that global capitalism causes governments and businesses to move laborers around like commodities. It's fascinating to see how organized Labor and Big Business are actually uniting in defense of migrants in the United States.
