    America's Jobless

    A study from the Center for Immigration Studies suggest that in the United States there is a correlation between unemployment among natives and the influx of immigrants. This data shows that immigrants get the upper hand in employment over natives. Since 2009, two-thirds of the net increase in employment has gone to immigrant workers, mostly legal immigrants. • Since President Obama took office, 67% of employment growth has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal).
    •There were 1.94 million more immigrants (legal and illegal) working in the third quarter of 2012 than at the start of 2009. This comares to a 938,000 increase for natives over the same time period.
    •Most of the immigrant growth in employment was the result of new immigration, from 2009 on.
    •Immigrants made employment gains across the labor market. In occupations where immigrant gains were the largest, there were 2.2 million unemployed natives.

    While immigrants seem to benefit from employment gains, the data paints a dismal picture for adult natives (18 and over).

    Unemployment rates by education attainment for adult natives for the third quarter of 2012:
    •30.8% for high school dropouts
    •18.1% for those with a high school education
    •13.8% for those with some college
    •8% for all college graduates and 13% for college graduates under age 30.

    Changed since I came over here then. Took me a year to even get a work visa, let alone a job.

    One thing the unemployment numbers do not reflect is people whose benefits have run out and people who are out of work but for whatever reason are not collecting benefits they also are not counted.
