History is the past. It is already history. Cannot change. Every country on earth is being invaded by another country since the evolution of living being. It is the survival of the fittest. Of course every country and its people has to know their history to value their current status. No point in defending. It is history and nothing can be changed. As for now, immigrants in every country face the same situation. They only work to earn their living. They don't really contribute to the economy of the country. They don't pay taxes yet they always get some basic needs and enjoy them as locals. In that sense they have an advantage. So no point in complaining about wages or income. If not happy then don't work. Just go back. Immigrants are invaders who make life difficult for those in that country by avoiding the opportunity for locals. Just stop making noise and get back to work or get out......simple as that
