Labor migration as a mass phenomenon appeared relatively recently. When the work force was needed in the colonies of the New World, and the local population turned out to be obstinate and did not want to work for the colonialists, companies that master new lands had to recruit workers in densely populated areas and transported to the place of work. Before that, labor migration as such was not. A stranger could put on a stake and take it to the nearest slave market. The morals were like that. There were, of course, individual people who achieved success in foreign lands, but they were rather travelers than labor migrants. And in itself a journey to another country was the lot of people who were not poor. At our time, labor migration became commonplace. A person who has arrived from afar in search of earnings has not surprised anyone for a long time. Moreover, the norm was not a one -time move, but precisely constant migration in search of earnings. There is no work in the Far East – there is work in Solnechnogorsk, there is no work in Solnechnogorsk – there is in Moscow, not in Moscow – there is in Europe, no in Europe – there is in America. In search of a better life, a person can go around the whole world. And not everyone settles in a new place. Many, having earned money, return to their homeland. Some countries let only people in demand in their specialties to work. Some countries open labor visas to specialists in the field of information technology without any problems and at the same time refuse to all finishes and a handyman. Which gives rise to a rather interesting situation. On the one hand, people leave from Moscow in search of a better life. On the other hand, they go to Moscow in search of a better life. The best life in this case is a relative concept. If from the countries of Central Asia, often from hunger. Then, in most cases, educated people who seek to find a highly paid job leave from Moscow to Europe and America.
