Jobs and Wages
It is often said immigrants take US jobs away from US citizens and that their inexpensive labor suppresses wages. In actuality, the opposite is true. Economists have found that immigration does not lead to a sizeable decrease in wages, and may actually increase wages and lower prices in the aggregate. The reason for this is that the immigrant’s low priced labor allows for US contractors, farmers, craftsmen, and manufacturers to expand production, thus increasing supply and creating more employment opportunities.
