One of the matters which might concern people is that presence of immigrants in the country affect height of wages. It is pointed out that increasing of supply can influence ceiling wages. It is also explained that immigrants are less likely to push employers to raise their salaries, because they might seem to be quite high compare what they had received in their homeland. But this argument can be invalid since occurrence of migrants in the country forces market to create more jobs. This might be true only in the sector where are huge shortages and hiring there immigrants restrict pressure for employers to boost wages (Brooks C., (1996)). Unfortunately immigrants working legally in the receiving country still earn less than native citizens.
