The "pull-push" theory is a theory that has been tested and applied to many studies of migration. According to a number of studies, there are many factors that motivate migration. However, the pull – push theory is still a comprehensive factor that influences other factors. Studies of free labour migration from rural to urban areas looking for jobs in Vietnam are not an exception. It is the "pull" forces of the destination and the "push" forces of the departure places where local people face many difficulties, have created the movement of population in society. This is as old as the hills, requiring the Party leaders at all levels and authorities to have the right recognition and appropriate behaviour. The most appropriate solution to the problem of the current migration in all its forms is to promote the process of industrialization and modernization in order to narrow the gap between regions, towards a harmony, fair, and wealthy society for all people.
