Here’s a revelation about the real war on women. The latest employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (see chart below) reports that since the recession hit in December of 2007, foreign workers netted 100% of all employment gains among women workers. In fact the number of American-born women with a job declined.
Between December 2007 and today the number of employed foreign-born women grew by almost a million from 9.041 million to 10.028 million. During the same period American-born women with a job fell by 64K from 59.322 million to 59.258 million, at the same time the total number of American-born women grew by 600K+. In 1970, less than 1 in 21 residents were foreign-born; today it is almost 1 in 7.
This job competition may be the reason why polling from Gallup and Fox report that Americans want Congress to reduce, not increase, immigration rates by a 2:1 margin.Reuters did a similar poll and reducing immigration won by nearly a 3:1 margin.
