Latinos get more than one-third of all U.S. jobs, two-thirds of construction jobs

They represent just 13.6 percent of the U.S. employment population, but Latinos accounted for 36.7 percent of the 2006 U.S. employment growth, a Pew Hispanic Center study study shows.

Most of the jobs Hispanic workers got were in the construction industry. In fact, 66 percent of new U.S. constriction jobs in 2006 went to Hispanic workers. Hispanic employment increased by almost 1 million from 2005 to 2006, with foreign-born Latinos who arrived since 2000 responsible for 24 percent of the total U.S. employment increase.

Illegal aliens accounted for about two-thirds of those recently arrived Hispanic workers, likely making up 16 percent of total U.S. employment growth in 2006.

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says
    there are no borders

    there are no outsiders
    your land is their land

  2. U.S. citizens can also just move to any country they wish, right?

  3. U.S. citizens move any place they wish to not only that but they also take the best jobs and who complains about that not the U.S right
