Immigration is what you have....

...when you collectively decide not to have children.
Reading Urban Onramps' posting about an Acton Policy article about Spain's Immigration problem.
Of course, part of me is thinking if you pair it with technology that replaces more jobs than it creates (software that can get rid of 20 secretaries but forces you to bring on 20 IT geeks and a manager, not helping) and reduction of wants and needs (you don't need a guy to blow leaves around at 7AM) may help.
But no. We want cheap labor and we ain't birthing that labor locally, so we import it.... or send the job off to a Chinese labor camp.
