In rigidly structured societies where entry into certain occupations and/or social strata are blocked, migration provides the channels of upward mobility. The study shows how West Indians of lower status origins use the professions - teaching and nursing - to achieve this mobility. The evidence also suggests a positive relationship between migration and levels of aspiration, career patterns, and anomie.
