Alexander Kononov, a futurologist and member of the Russian Philosophical Society of the Russian Academy of Sciences, predicted what would change in the capital if migrants disappeared. He told about this to Moslente.
“Without labor migrants, the active construction of roads, metro, housing, which we see now in Moscow, and in other cities, will stop,” Kononov predicted. According to him, this will lead to the closure of most businesses, the disappearance of many vacancies, and, accordingly, to unemployment. The expert stressed that the current economic system is built on the labor of migrants.
In addition, Kononov recalled that in Soviet times, it was not Muscovites who worked in factories and hazardous industries, but the so-called “limiters” – visitors from all over the country. No attention was paid to their nationality. Including thanks to the limiters, Moscow did not face a serious demographic crisis after the collapse of the USSR, the futurist added.
Earlier, the owner of one of the capital’s restaurants spoke out in defense of migrant workers. According to him, most of the professional chefs from the near abroad are distinguished by a responsible approach to work.
