American Teenagers Compete with Immigrants for Jobs – Obama Change is Here!

Sharing is Caring!

(LifeZette) The number of teenagers in the U.S. with a job has been cut in half since the 1980s, and researchers who’ve studied the issue closely say it appears immigration has a lot to do with it. Christopher L. Smith, an economist with the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, found in 2012 that a 10 percent increase in the number of employed immigrants with no more than a high school diploma reduces the average number of hours American teenagers work in a year by 3 percent.
There are now four times as many foreign-born people in the U.S. than there were in 1970 — and fewer teenagers working than at any time in recent history.
Immigration, Smith wrote in the Journal of Labor Economics, “has had a sizable impact on youth employment.” In the first quarter of 2017, just 18 percent of 16- and 17-year-old, U.S.-born Americans had jobs — a historic low.
The problem: One-quarter of American teenage males and almost one-third of American teenage females work in the 20 most popular jobs for immigrants. These include restaurant cooks, restaurant servers, construction, and grocery-store cashier jobs.
As immigrants take those jobs, teenagers looking for work are out of luck.
“What you’ve seen is just a totally massive decline in work among the young in the United States,” says Steve Camarota, the director of research for the Center for Immigration Reform.
Immigration isn’t likely the only reason, granted, he told LifeZette.

HOW MANY BROKEN PROMISES TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR PROFIT FOR NON-AMERICANS BY OBAMA? LIES FOR ILLUSIONS TO CONTINUE? LIES FOR PROFITS AND PROGRAMS THAT DON’T WORK? LIES BY A FORMER PRESIDENT WHO REFUSED TO SHOW A PASSPORT OR A REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
WHY NOT SUPPORT WHAT YOU ARE – THANKS FOR THE CHANGE OBAMA!

2014 – Obama unveils new immigration plan

2012 No One Listened to the Truth About Who is the REAL Barack Obama – The Liar Deceiver Puppet Satan. Living with the lies…
This is an extraordinary fact based expose of the fairy tale story “sold” to the American public about Barack Obama and those who have surrounded and influenced him since childhood. Do you know ANYONE who believes the things Obama believes or would do the things Obama has done? What is most disturbing is the extent to which the mainstream media has been complicit in keeping these facts from the American public.

  1. Ever tried to hire an American teenager? They for the most part, feel that they should not have to work. I’d rather hire immigrants, no matter what this Zionist website says.

  2. Statistically, older workers, especially those with families are more reliable than teenagers when it comes to showing up on time for a shift and not calling in sick or just skipping out altogether. An employer looking at two applications, one from an older worker and one from a teenager is more likely to choose the former. Given the push into automating many entry level jobs due to the rising minimum wage, teens and young adults will have to work harder to secure and keep the jobs they can get.
    Getting fired from a minimum wage, part-time job isn’t a huge problem for a teenager since having gaps on a resume isn’t seen as abnormal. Parents should instill in their kids though that if they have taken a job, they need to show up and do their best until they move on. References are good, but responsibility is even more important.
