Pew: Immigrants Gain U.S. Jobs While Native-Born Americans Lose Them
October 29th, 2010 (3) Posted By Pat Dollard.
Immigrant workers have gained jobs since the recession ended, while native-born Americans continued to lose work, a new report finds.
The Pew Hispanic Center released a report Friday that shows foreign-born residents gained 656,000 jobs from June 2009 to June 2010. At the same time, workers born in the country lost 1.2 million jobs.
The report said reasons for the huge gap are unclear. But it suggested that immigrants are more likely to take low-paid jobs because some of them aren’t eligible for unemployment benefits.
“It might be that in the search for jobs in the recovery, immigrants were more accepting of lower wages and reduced hours because many, especially unauthorized immigrants, are not eligible for unemployment benefits,” it says.
The report doesn’t break down how many jobs are filled by legal immigrants, as compared with illegal ones.
It also found that while immigrants are getting more jobs than nonimmigrant workers, they’re suffering from sharp declines in earnings. From June 2009 to June 2010, median weekly earnings for immigrants dropped 4.5 percent, but only less than 1 percent for workers born here.
The issue of American jobs being filled by immigrant workers, or outsourced to other countries, has captivated this election cycle. Republicans argue that illegal immigrants are taking jobs that U.S. citizens are willing to do, while Democrats say that the real problem is U.S. companies outsourcing manufacturing jobs to India and China, among other countries.
The report is based on numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Labor Department
How many jobs will Americans lose once illegals get amnesty?
Since there are 20 million here illegally and once they become citizens and bring their families over, how many Americans will lose their jobs to people who will do it for half price? The construction industry, maids, fast food restaurants, etc have already been decimated by this. Entry level jobs are all being occupied now. How long before your job is gone?
Best answer: Answer by Lou Dobbs About 20 million
Amnesty is a slap in the face to all of those immigrants who did it the hard way. It only encourges even more to find their way over here, which in turn creates a new cycle of illegals who will too get amnesty and so on. Before you know it, the third worldization of America has occured.
Americans now have a horrible work ethic
The sinking Euro hasn’t seriously derailed foreign appetite for premiere US real estate but the next few weeks will reveal whether the Euro zone crisis will eat away at demand, according to experts.
‘We thought our foreign buyers would flee, but they haven’t as yet,’ said Pamela Liebman, president and chief executive of The Corcoran Group told the Reuters Global Real Estate and Infrastructure summit in New York.
‘It still feels as good as it did before the Euro crisis but we’re waiting to see and it’s nowhere near what it was with the condo boom,’ Liebman added.
Delegates heard that the mix of foreign buyers has already shifted over the past two years.
Italians, South Americans, Southeast Asians, Chinese and Russians are in while the Irish and Koreans are out.
Foreign buyers are looking for a safe and secure place to put their money and they are finding that in the best known US addresses, according to Jay Koster, president of Americas Capital Markets for Jones Lang LaSalle.
‘There is tremendous appetite especially if the address says 5th Avenue or Park Avenue or Madison Avenue,’ said Koster, referring to New York's glitzier streets. Foreigners are ‘buying long term value or buying stability. They’re buying Pennsylvania Avenue in D.C. and they’re buying Rodeo Drive in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles. It’s broader than Manhattan, but still very finite demand.’
