It depends on the education - if they are B Sc in some obscure and useless faculty they're a waste of space.

Young immigrants from what i've seen are trust fund kids. The expensive training they undertake doesnt seem to benefit them in anyway. they are rude and stick to their own cultural groups. creating a segregated society.

Reasons To Agree
Targeted skills are very MUCH desriable to the economy and will bring in new skills as well as help fill in gaps in the work force, as i have said before one of the only thing restricting the NZ economy is growing further is the lack of skilled and unskilled migrants and people in general

The argument for disagreeing is illiterate and a shame on the nation, whether it is written by a native or immigrant. It may sound simplistic, but English skills by natives or immigrants are crucial. NZ is a very small nation in no danger of over-population, unless that is by uneducated and useless people.

sometimes, but many Chinese and Indian immigrants are taking academic jobs because their families are paying for all the education. This makes it more difficult for NZers
