9. Yes, I have met many amazing immigrants

in my day-to-day life. So often they have expertise in various fields in their home countries but their credentials are not recognized here. So they wind up working minimum wage jobs, often two or three jobs to earn enough to keep their families afloat. I wish there were more "bridging programs" so that these people could upgrade their already existing skills to American/Canadian standards. Asking them to start over in their respective careers is unfair and unrealistic.
