Исследование влияния экологической обстановки на предложение рабочей силы в городах: роль экологической миграции

This article is devoted to the problem of the impact of migration due to the change in the quality of the ecological situation on the labor supply in the cities. Statistical data on the cities of the Volga Federal District shows that despite the high level of air pollutions from stationary sources, the demographic situation in these cities is characterized by migration growth. This can be explained by the fact that a high level of emissions characterizes economically more developed cities with a high level of industrial production, and, as a result, a relatively higher average wage and labor market capacity. Thus in Russian cities one can observe a situation where city residents attach greater importance to economic incentives that accompany industrial development of cities, while the negative effects that accompany such development and express in environmental pollution have not yet been significant with to make a decision about migration to more environmentally friendly cities.
