I know many of the topics and ills are associated with our southern border, but I am curious as to how many would support free movement of labor/employees between the US and Canada.

That is, if you are an american citizen, you could work/apply for a position in canada without needing a work permit and vice versa. The only criteria would be that you can move only if you have a position/job.

In the EU, only 2-3% of EU citizens live permanement/indefinitely in a different country from their 'home country' and only 10% of EU citizens work in another EU country at some point of their life.

Now having free movement of labor with canada would only apply to US and Canadian citizens. I feel this policy would benefit both employees and business owners and gives more options to everyone.

thoughts?

This is not an illegal immigration topic. However, I am a staunch believer in sovereign borders and the rights of citizens in all countries to have access to jobs and resources first and foremost. Free movement of labor sounds like the citizens of a country would have to compete for jobs with foreigners in their own country. How can this possibly be a good thing for them? I don't care if it is Canada or Mexico either.

Duplicate topic.

US-Canada free labour movement?

I stand by my comments. No free movement of labor
