A recent 2018 jobs report, released by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), shows that employment for all foreign workers in the U.S. increased by 3%, while employment for all American workers increased a little less than 1.5%. The data also shows a much higher growth rate of employment for foreign national men -- an increase of 2.7% -- compared to employment for American-born men -- a 1.7% increase.
Despite the downward pressure on wages and competition of foreign-born workers with American workers, employers continue to hire more foreign nationals, with two foreign workers joining the U.S. workforce for every four new American workers.
The report comes after the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) released data last week from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the first quarter of 2018, showing that employment levels for workers have not yet returned to pre-recession levels.
