You're reading it wrong, look at the graph title. It's not saying that out of "1000 new jobs" so many go to those people. It's saying that per 1000 people, those who got new jobs (35), THIS is how the gender and nativity break down. The other 965 didn't get new jobs.That graph is impossible. If 35’ish jobs out of a 1000 are filled by both native and foreign born individuals, are the other 965 going to space aliens?
Ah, that makes a lot more sense considering it then lines up with the 3.5% of the other graph. It also means the majority of native born people already have jobs and we have to H1 those extra 3% so our companies can function.You're reading it wrong, look at the graph title.

Ironically, when things were good before the recession, companies couldn't lay off engineers fast enough and replace them with contractors from Bangalore. I saw the writing on the wall, got my masters in business, and got the hell out while I was still in charge. About two years later, they did lay off the guy I trained to take my spot, and he was younger and cheaper than I would have been.I’m still suspicious, just based on previous reports that exaggerated job growth when it wasn’t actually there (huge underemployment), but I do know engineers are becoming harder and harder to lure in and keep as the market has improved as well. Importation might become more necessary there as well if things continue to grow at the current pace.
Yeeeeeeeahhhhhh..... while I too would like to tell china, russia, the middle east, germany, france, and the rest of the world to f#$% off, I'm decidedly against less crap. I'm in the storage business and people owning tons of cheap shit from china is the reason I exist. Now, if you could find a way for this country to competitively make the same amount of crap domestically, then I will get on board.Am I crazy for wanting him to tell China to get bent entirely? That we'll find a way to make our own crap again.
