Immigrants: The Unsung Heroes Boosting US Employment and Keeping Inflation in Check!

In the midst of political and social debates surrounding immigration, it is important to consider the fundamental role immigrants play in influencing the U.S. job market. More importantly, their role in boosting the job market is not merely supportive; there is compelling evidence to suggest that immigrants have a positive impact on the job market without fueling inflation. This article explores the dynamic and invaluable ways through which immigrants bolster the U.S. job market.

Firstly, immigrants are notable contributors to entrepreneurship and small business development. According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, immigrants start businesses at higher rates than native-born Americans. Moreover, around 25% of technology and engineering companies started in the U.S. between 2006 to 2012 had at least one immigrant founder. These businesses create numerous job opportunities for both native-born Americans and fellow immigrants, expanding the overall employment.

In addition to entrepreneurship, immigrants significantly contribute to labor supply and economic growth. The U.S. has an aging population; the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the labor force growth rate will gravitate towards a standstill, reaching almost 0% by 2026. Immigrants, many of whom are of working age, help fill this gap, providing essential manpower in various industries, from health care and construction to agriculture and food services. By ensuring a steady labor supply, immigrants power economic growth and job creation without pushing up inflation.

Moreover, immigrants often complement rather than compete with native-born workers. They typically take up jobs in industries and occupations where there is a lack of interest or availability of native-born workers. This phenomenon is especially notable in jobs considered 3D, that is, dirty, dangerous, and demanding or demeaning. By filling gaps in the labor market, immigrants help maintain the functionality and productivity of U.S. industries.

The role of immigrants also extends to driving innovation in the U.S. economy. According to the U.S. Department of State, immigrants have been awarded nearly a third of the U.S. Nobel Prizes in Chemistry, Medicine, and Physics. Innovation sparked by immigrants typically leads to new industries and job creation.

Regarding the inflation aspect, generally, when demand for goods and services increases, prices tend to rise. This could subsequently lead to inflation if not met with equal or higher production. However, the influx of immigrants, both as consumers and members of the labor force, helps match this increased demand with corresponding supply. By contributing to the workforce and productivity, immigrants help in maintaining the balance, thus preventing
