Open Borders: Visa-Free Work Abroad
Goods can travel visa- and tax-free, why can't people?
Why is it that inanimate objects have more mobility rights than people? International free-trade laws have allowed for the free flow of material goods across international borders, but people are required to obtain visas to do the same.
Sally Khallash: Open up the borders!
This is particularly an issue when it comes to people being able to move from a place without jobs to a place with plentiful job opportunities. Employers sometimes want international applicants to have the necessary visas before applying for a job, but their countries often require job placement before they will issue the work visa.
It's a Catch 22. Free and open borders, however, would allow for young people to legally move to where they can get jobs.
