A RISING TIDE OF IMMIGRANTS LIFTS THE WHOLE JOB MARKET:

US economy's latest output: better jobs: Newest job numbers show that businesses are expanding opportunities in high-wage fields. (Mark Trumbull, 4/11/06, The Christian Science Monitor)

The US economy isn't just producing jobs these days, it's also producing good jobs. [...]

This good news about the breadth of job creation comes against a backdrop of labor-market anxiety that has persisted despite the economy's solid overall footing. Competition from imported goods, the threat of outsourcing services abroad, and a controversial influx of illegal laborers are just some of the forces that make many workers worried about their future.


America's uniquely open economy is a job machine, so the far Right wants to make it more like France's or Japan's?

American jobs at American wages for Americans. Buchanan/Tancredo '08.

(Did we mention American, and um Americans? Oh, and Consuela, don't forget to dust the bookshelves today and pick up little Britney from soccer practice at 4.)

I'm not really clear with all this; Are you worried about illegal immigrants competing with natives for high-paying jobs?
