Fewer US-Born Americans Have Jobs Now Than in 2007 | The Daily Caller

Almost half of new jobs added since 2010 have gone to migrants

Fewer Americans born in the U.S. have jobs now than were employed to November 2007, despite a working-age population growth of 11 million.

The amazing drop in employment highlights President Barack Obama’s slow recovery from the deep 2008 shock, but also spotlights many companies’ growing reliance on foreign migrant labor.

In November 2014, one in every five U.S. jobs was held by a foreign-born worker, up from one-in-six jobs in January 2010, according to federal data highlighted by the Center for Immigration Studies.

Since November 2007, the number of working legal and illegal migrants has risen by two million, from 23.1 million in November 2007 to 25.1 million in November 2014.

But the number of Americans with jobs has fallen by 1.5 million, from 124 million in November 2007 to 122.6 million November 2014.

“All of the net gain in employment since 2007 has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal). … Native employment has still not returned to pre-recession levels, while immigrant employment already exceeds pre-recession level,” said a Dec. 19 statement from the group.

The job transfer from Americans to immigrants has accelerated since the economy bottomed out in mid-2009.

Almost one in every two added jobs has gone to a foreign-born worker.

Since January 2010, 5.4 million foreign-born people have gained jobs in the recovery.

Since January 2010, 6.9 million Americans have gained jobs, even though their population was six times larger.

The influx of foreign workers includes many foreign graduates. Their arrival is forcing many debt-burdened Americans graduates to start their careers in lower-wage jobs. Those American graduates will be stuck with lower wages for many years unless employers face a shortage of workers in the next few years.

That process has widened the gap in wealth between the wealthiest one percent and the rest of the country.

The surplus of workers, dubbed a “slack labor market,” has largely been ignored by media outlets, which have tried to blame stagnant wages on Wall Street greed, technology, education, the recession and various other causes.

Media coverage of the immigration issue has overwhelmingly focused on the preferences of migrants, not the preference of actual Americans now working in canneries and meat-packing plants, hospitals, universities and office parks.

Each year, 4.3 million Americans turn 18 and compete for decent jobs.

They’re joined by roughly 650,000 working-age legal immigrants, roughly 650,000 non-agriculture guest workers, and a number of illegal immigrants who cross the southern border or over stay their visas.

White House officials have tried to argue that the inflow of foreign labor will boost productivity and create opportunities for American workers.

On Nov. 20, President Barack Obama announced he would provide work permits to five million illegal immigrants in the United States.

In the past, Obama has admitted that migrant workers threaten wages for lower-skilled Americans, including African-Americans.

Obama has also offered work permits to at least 50,000 Central American migrants who crossed the border in 2014 and to 110,000 Haitian immigrants.

Since 2012, Obama has also given work permits to 600,000 younger illegals, under the so-called “DACA” program.

Obama has also offered work permits to 100,000 additional guest workers and he announced Nov. 20 that he would increase the inflow of university trained guest workers for jobs sought by Americans graduates.

Roughly one million foreign, university-trained guest workers are already working in the United States in a wide variety of long-term jobs in universitieshospitalsfinance firms, retail and technology firms.

Overall, Obama has announced plans to give work permits to an extra six million migrants, in addition to the roughly eight million legal migrants that will arrive during his eight years in the White House. That adds up to almost one new foreign worker for every two Americans who tun 18.
