No career path for migrant workers

In Wednesday’s editorial, “Human rights app needed,” this line struck me as particularly profound:

“… like everybody else who see the upwardly mobile all around them. They want to own an iPhone, not build them.”

I wonder if this observation can apply to other social problems. For example:

… like everybody else who see the upwardly mobile all around them. They want to eat food, not harvest it themselves.

Perhaps it is why the U.S. has such an illegal immigration problem, there is no upwardly mobile career path for migrant farm worker.
