Talk About Misused Resources
The main thing you’ll notice is that highly educated native-born women are employed at much higher rates than immigrants, while native-born men are employed at slightly lower rates at almost every education level.
I disagree. I’d say the main thing I notice about these graphs is the fact that the percentage of people sans high-school education who are employed is twice that among folks from Mexico and Central America as it is among native-born workers. I’d also notice that it’s about 50% higher for those who have been to high school but have no diploma and that it’s about 20% even for those who do have high-school diplomas. But is wage reduction really an issue here? How about competition in job-seeking for the less-educated among us? What about the payroll taxes that these migrants and their unemployed counterparts aren’t paying? Naaaaaaaah.
