Study: Immigrants Returning To Work Quicker Than U.S.-Born Counterparts

WASHINGTON - Immigrants are returning to work quicker than their U.S.-born counterparts. But they are receiving less pay than before the economic downturn. Those are findings of a Pew Hispanic Center study released Friday.

It said immigrants in the U.S. have gained 656,000 jobs since the Great Recession ended in June 2009. By comparison, U.S.-born workers lost 1.2 million jobs. The unemployment rate for immigrants fell over the same period to 8.7 percent from 9.3 percent. For American-born workers, the jobless rate rose to 9.7 percent from 9.2 percent.

Immigrants make up 15.7 percent of the labor force. The study said immigrant wages fell sharply in the last year. It said Latino immigrants experienced the largest wage drop of any
group.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Location, location, location.  You may have seen a post making its way around social media of a house listing in Seattle for nearly $450,000.
