  • Once Again Foreign-Born Jobs Are Up, U.S.-Born Jobs Down

    Jobs for foreign-born workers increased in September, while jobs for workers born in the U.S. declined for the second month in a row, new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows.

    Foreign workers gained an additional 14,000 jobs, while native-born workers lost 262,000 jobs, according to September BLS data. The number of working adults 16 and older fell by nearly 250,000.

    Native-born jobs fell by nearly 700,000 in August, while foreign-born jobs increased by more than 200,000.

    Since 1970, the foreign-born population has increased by more than 325 percent, while wages and share of income fell. (RELATED: Wages Declined As Immigration Surged)

    Wages remain flat and record numbers of Americans are not in the workforce. In September, nearly 40 percent of people in the U.S. ages 16 and older were not employed or looking for work.

    By 2023 the foreign-born population will exceed 51 million — the largest share of total population ever recorded in American history — the Census Bureau recently projected. (RELATED: 1965 Immigration Law Exploded Foreign-Born Population)

    Nearly one in five U.S. residents will be an immigrant by 2060, largely because of legal immigration, not illegal immigration, a previous Center for Immigration Studies analysis of the Census data found. And immigrants will account for 82 percent of population growth in the U.S. from 2010 through 2060.
