Immigrants Displacing Natives

A quote from Edwin Rubenstein on, 10 August 2005
Since the start of the Bush Administration (January 2001), Hispanic employment has risen by 2.585 million, or 16.0 percent. Non-Hispanic employment is up by 1.720 million, or 1.41 percent. This is particularly shocking when you remember that Hispanics are only 15 percent of the workforce. Yet they got 60 percent of the job growth. The displacement of native workers by immigrants is best measured by charting the trend of Hispanic and non-Hispanic employment growth, and the ratio of the two growth rates, which we call the American Worker Displacement Index [VDAWDI].
