New Study Finds Immigrants Aren't Taking Americans' Jobs



















Link to article: http://nyti.ms/2d1pZG2
Summary:
New studies show that immigrants coming to America are not taking jobs from American citizens. Studies show that there was little to no negative effect on wages and employment from immigrants coming to America. Immigrants coming to America have actually increased the amount of jobs available in some areas. Immigrants in the field of science and technology have spurred innovation in their fields, which has created more jobs in those fields.

Connection:
When Ellis Island opened as an immigration center, they did not allow immigrants who secured a job in America to come into the country. They viewed this as stealing a job from an American who was already in the country.

Question:
Do you think people's views on immigrants coming to America will change? Why or why not?

  1. After more and more people find out that the immigrants are not taking American jobs, then people will be more accepting and not mad at them.

    1. I definitely agree with you. So many people think that immigrants are taking jobs from Americans, but in reality they are not. Once people are more accepting of this fact, they will not feel anger towards immigrants.

  2. I believe that when immigrants come to the US they do the jobs that we don't want to do such as all the dirty jobs, cleaning and hard labor. Since Donald trump has been trying to send immigrants back people are realizing what they do for the US and are becoming more appreciative for what they have done and the jobs they have opened up.

  3. Immigrants are doing the right choice because for many years they have been taking the jobs that many Americans don't want to do when really they have a higher potential to do something better. Like Ryan said once the immigrants stop taking the jobs Americans do, the people will start to realize how the immigrants really are.

  4. People's opinions change all the time through out history. some longer than others, it's only a matter of time until most American's will see that immigrants are taking other American's jobs and are benefitting the economy cause of their hard work.

  5. People's views change over time. Once they realize that immigrants actually benefit the nation's economy (on the article, it said that high-skilled immigrants had a major contribution on America's economy), then they're going to start appreciating them; and trying to push them away won't help them either, because when they leave there's no one left to do the jobs that aren't their desire :)

  6. I think people's views will eventually change as they get used to immigrants coming into the country and now that studies show that they are not stealing American's jobs it will be easier to accept them.

  8. I believe that people's views will change as this study shows there are no negative effects of immigrants entering the U.S. This might change the views of the presidential candidate (Donald Trump), who is persistent in making a wall blocking off immigrants.

  9. I agree with Sid, people's views will change in the future, because studies are now showing the little negative effects immigrants place on the US.

  12. Judging by America's history, I do not think the country's views on immigration will change. The citizens of the U.S. have always exhibited some form of xenophobia, so even though these studies prove that immigrants "aren't taking American jobs", this general dislike of immigrants doesn't seem likely to change.

  14. I think the views of the people could change, but only if they embrace the results of the study done, so they understand immigrants are not taking American jobs, but creating more jobs, and helping further technology.

  15. I don't really believe peoples views will change because most of the people who are racist will always be racist because they were raised with certain beliefs and sometimes know no better. It would be great if their beliefs changed, but i don't believe it will happen. Racist people are close-minded and aren't really accepting towards different races.

  16. I don't really believe that people's views will change because when we are young, our parent influence what we believe in. People might view differently later in life.
