There are a lot of people who dream of moving to the United States as they wish to live the american dream. The reason for this is that they view it as being the land of opportunity. This used to just be taken for granted but is this stil the case?
According to Richard Florida, the director of the Martin Prosperity Institute at the University of Toronto, The economic crisis has put a substantial crimp in a cornerstone of the American dream – their ability to climb the socio-economic ladder. He also suggests that suggests that young ambitious Americans may be headed overseas – to China, India, emerging economies and other places to pursue economic opporrtunity. On the other hand starting up your own business is far easier in the U.S. than in most other countries. Admittedly this is often because of necessity as the result of the prejudices that they encounter in the job hunt.ppo
According to http://www.legalregulationreview.com the reason therefore is that there is far less red tape in
chance to grow your business and see it become a success.
“Every day in America, 13 people go to work and never come home. Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover. These are preventable tragedies that disable our workers, devastate our families, and damage our economy. American workers are not looking for a handout or a free lunch. They are looking for a good day’s pay for a hard day’s work. They just want to go to work, provide for their families, and get home in one piece.”
– Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, Workers Memorial Day speech April 26, 2012
