How immigrants create jobs by Tyler Cowen on October 31, 2010 We see the job-creating benefits of trade and immigration every day, even if we dont always recognize them. As other papers by Professor Peri have shown, low-skilled immigrants usually fill gaps in American labor markets and generally enhance domestic business prospects rather than destroy jobs; this occurs because of an important phenomenon, the presence of what are known as complementary workers, namely those who add value to the work of others. An immigrant will often take a job as a construction worker, a drywall installer or a taxi driver, for example, while a native-born worker may end up being promoted to supervisor. And as immigrants succeed here, they help the United States develop strong business and social networks with the rest of the world, making it easier for us to do business with India, Brazil and most other countries, again creating more jobs.

My grandson who worked as apprentice in construction and after training could not get a job in construction because illegal aliens are taking those jobs in now working in Venezuela for a Venezuelan contractor. Million of American construction workers are unemployed because construction contractors want cheap labor but cheap labor has turned out to be not so cheap. I know a woman who fell because grab bars were not in studs and came out of the wall. Cost the company a $100,000. Much of the work done by illegal aliens have to be done over at a cost to the contractor.
