Santisteban Keyla F eliciano Educational Selectivity Contrary to popular belief They are not stupid the Immigration waves show more selectivity than the earlier wave immigrants Irish Germans Europeans The farther the country is from the US that more selectivity they have because costs are higher China Iran and Indians along with Guatemalans and Salvadorians 9Show higher selectivity Migrant selectivity people who migrate are different from those who are at risk of migration but do not migrate Contrary to popular belief It s not the poorest that migrate It s not people from places with the lowest wages Regions of low emigration were among the poorest in the country People don t often voluntarily migrate out of extreme poverty or lack of development Cinel Change versus continuity Is migration a break from the past or a continuation of one process Are migrants uprooted from their identities torn from their ancestral homes and forced to become modern Or are migrants active and intelligent individuals controlling their destinies Is it possible to combine these change continuity perspectives Both the model of change and that of continuity though contributing to our understanding of the immigrant experience are based on a process of reductionism that treats continuity and change as mutually exclusive categories One cannot avoid the question of why much historical research seems to assume that there is only one basic logical explanation behind the complexity of human events The historian s degree of intellectual sophistication seems to be measured by his ability to discover such an explanation and by his skill in refuting any other a roach i l All the theories are supported with Italian Migration Neoclassical wages individual decision makers New economics access to capital and risk management households return and remittances Social networks and cumulative causation friends and family effect institutions of migration culture of migration Segmented labor market demand for labor inherent to receiving recruiters World systems capitalistdriven changes in sending country mobilize migrants Chang Factory Girls produce cheap labor Women in

in receiving countries Culture of migration chuqu The migrants Work life conditions China Blue Cheap Laborers Factory owners have immense power While the workers do not Easier to manipulate It is a cycle because the ones with the highest power are the core countries Child laborer 16 years old they get nes for waking up late Missing work Factory owner was part of the police force These kids are uneducated and receive half a Yuan which is 6 cents Females are obedient 100 Yuan600 cents Labor unions and strikes are illegal They hire kids from 14 years old But do not say anything Sassen linkages that the United States has made with third world countries Poverty unemployment and overpopulation by themselves do not promote largescale emigration It is necessary to identify the inrocesses that transform these conditions into a migrationinducing situation r 1 World s systems Capital mobility serves the interest of core capitalists seeking lower wages in the periphery Capital mobility generates labor mobility which also serves the interests of core capitalists by providing low wage labor in the core Disruption 1 Displacement 2 Mobilization 3 Recruitment of women into workforce 4
