2. I like the notion of migration as an expansion of employment opportunities, but the reality is that there are some migrants "more equal than others." Migration seen as a differentiated product in terms of quality, cost, risk and return, explains why the poor migrate closer, to lower skilled activities, to areas where language barriers are not high and in more vulnerable conditions. As a result, the expected return is relatively low, but still high enough to entice the move. Improving the quality of the migration product is a critical element in addressing the challenges for the low skilled.
