There is some other data, not in our report, that addresses this question of what people now refer to as social capital. The literature shows that people with “contacts” are more likely to get employed than those with limited contacts. That has an impact on some immigrant cohorts.
Part of what is happening there is that it is those who have contacts who tend to find out about opportunities. I think what we're talking about in terms of regulation is to allow for an opening up, so that it isn't just the people who have contacts who get access to those opportunities, which means that we simply reproduce the labour market as it is today, but that we allow for people who may have skills but do not necessarily have those contacts to also have access. Word of mouth seems to be one of the most effective ways of employers recruiting, and word of mouth tends to be limited to networks.
