Immigration Penalizes Teens July 10, 2018

Aaaaannnddd surprising exactly nobody, the Center for Immigration Studies has shown that allowing more immigrants into the labor market tends to suppress employment rates of US teens:

The Center for Immigration Studies found that as the number of U.S. teens with summer jobs has dropped significantly, employment of immigrants has doubled.

“Immigrants — legal and illegal — are crowding out U.S.-born teenagers in the labor market,” according to the report from Steven A. Camarota, director of research at CIS, and demographer Karen Zeigler.

In his analysis, Camarota found that employers are seizing on older immigrants, often over 20 and with some working experience, instead of U.S. teens to fill summer jobs. And another driving factor, he said, may be that immigrants are willing to work for a lower wage.

As I said, no surprise.

This why responsible policy makers tailor immigration to benefit Americans, particularly those at the low end of the wage scale.

But apparently that’s now racist.
