Update September 6th: Black unemployment at over 11%, here.
Recently we told you about the busy beaver federal refugee contractors who are working hard to bring MORE cheap immigrant labor to North Carolina while native North Carolinians are going without work at an unprecedented rate.
Then see the proof from the Center for Immigration Studies which analyzed the statistics to confirm what we suspected.
Natives accounted for most of the growth in population, but all employment growth went to immigrants
The Gang of Eight immigration bill (S.744) passed by the Senate last June would have roughly doubled the number of new foreign workers allowed into the country, as well as legalized illegal immigrants already here. North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagen (D) voted for it. An analysis of government data by the Center for Immigration Studies shows that, since 2000, all of the net increase in the number of working-age (16 to 65) people holding a job in North Carolina has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal). This is the case even though the native-born accounted for 61 percent of growth in the state’s total working-age population.
Read it all, it is shocking!
I wonder if the same thing holds for Pennsylvania?
