BREAKING: Foreign-Born Workers More Likely To Have Jobs Than Native-Born Americans

It’s finally come to this…

New data from the National Bureau of Statistics has revealed that foreign born people in the U.S. are more likely to have jobs than Americans who were actually born here.

According to Breitbart, the unemployment rate for foreigners in the U.S. in 2014 was 5.6%. This compared to 6.3% for native born Americans.

Though the unemployment rate for foreign-born workers has declined since 2013, their total numbers are on the rise. There are now 25.7 million foreign-born workers in the U.S., which is up from 25.3 million in 2013.

The foreign-born workers also beat out their American-born peers in labor force participation.

“By region, the foreign born made up a larger share of the labor force in the West (23.8 percent) and in the Northeast (19.2 percent) than for the nation as a whole (16.5 percent) in 2014. In contrast, the foreign born made up a smaller share of the labor force than for the nation as a whole in the South (15.3 percent) and Midwest (8.5 percent),” the BLS reported.

Foreign-born workers are still less likely to earn more money than American born workers. This chasm, however, diminishes at higher education levels.

“The gap between the earnings of foreign-born and native-born workers closes at higher levels of education,” the BLS explained. “For example, among high school graduates (no college), full-time workers who were foreign born earned 84.3 percent as much in 2014 as their native-born counterparts. Among those with a bachelor’s degree and higher, the earnings of foreign-born workers were essentially the same as the earnings of native-born workers.”

Obama will undoubtedly celebrate these statistics, since if he had his way all American jobs would go to foreign immigrants who worship him.
