Why is it a good measure?

  • When the economic growth is unevenly distributed, the locals perceive that outsiders garner more shares of the gains from such growth.
  • Moreover, there is a need to preserve local languages and cultures and not fall prey to the temptation to impose a single or a common language on all.
  • Many experts often stress on the need to assimilate into the local conditions which means outsiders and migrants needs to learn the local language and observe the local customs.
  • Also, there might be fewer mishaps and accidents on the shop floor of manufacturing firms since there are lesser chances of communication gaps leading to such incidents.
  • Hiring locals who are familiar with the terrain and language is critical in customer facing roles.

Drawbacks of such measures

  • There are chances that some of such jobs would be done by people who might be less qualified than those who could have got the job in normal circumstances.
  • Reserving jobs for locals narrows the supply of eligible candidates that can result in poor and shoddy work.
  • Regional chauvinism affects the industries and leads to deterioration in industrial growth.
  • There are many jobs that require specialised skills and innovative abilities that can go waste if the talent pool is narrowed.
  • Such measures can also result in the vitiation of the workplace culture since the workforce would be polarised and split into various groups.
