Immigration’s Effects on American Wages and Unemployment

Hi. I’m Lone Candle.

We hear a lot of rhetoric about immigrants being good or bad. There’s a lot of ways to cut this issue, but I want to take a moment to cover the impact of immigrants on American jobs and wages.

Do immigrants take our jobs!? Do they suppress our wages? Let’s get into it.

Fortunately, economists have been studying this for decades and the theory and evidence is pointing toward some consistent conclusions.
