NATIONAL DATA: November Jobs—American Worker Displacement Is Definitely Back. So Is Real Wage Stagnation.

[Research by Edwin S. Rubenstein]

American employers reported weaker-than-expected payroll growth last month. But the survey of American households showed a surge in the number taking jobs—with—surprise, surprise—immigrants gaining them at a rate far greater than natives.

Those conflicting pictures emerged from last Friday’s BLS jobs report, further clouding the economic outlook.

The survey of employers showed the addition of just 210,000 jobs in November, the year’s weakest showing. Economists had forecast a second straight gain of more than 500,000.

But good news—for immigrants anyway—abounded in the household survey, which showed that the total number employed, seasonally adjusted, jumped by more than 1.1 million. The unemployment rate fell to 4.2% from 4.6%.

“I don’t know that I’ve ever seen such an extraordinary gap between the two surveys,” said Diane Swonk, chief economist for the accounting firm of Grant Thornton in Chicago[Stocks slide again after the jobs report sends mixed signals on the economy., New York Times, December 3, 2021].

Ms. Swonk is obviously not a VDARE.com reader. We have long noted that the survey of employer payrolls misses non-traditional workers—people selling things on CraigsList, working off-the-books, and…illegal immigrants. Last month’s data confirms the undercount, with payroll employment coming in at 148.6 million versus 155.2 million for Household Survey, both seasonally adjusted.

Our analysis of the November Household Survey finds:

  • Immigrants (legal and illegal, the Household Survey does not distinguish) gained 565,000 jobs, a 2.08% increase from October.
  • Native-born Americans gained 571,000 positions, a 0.45% increase from October.
  • Thus VDARE.com’s immigrant employment index, set at 100.0 in January 2009, rose to 128.2 from 125.5 in October, a rise of 2.08%.
  • VDARE.com’s Native-born employment index rose to 105.7 from 105.2 in October, a raise of 0.45%.

This means that the New VDARE American Worker Displacement Index   (NVDAWDI), our name for the ratio of immigrant to native-born employment growth indexes since Jan. 2009, rose to 121.3 from 119.3 in October, a 1.62% increase.

Johnson: “Fauci did the exact same thing with AIDS. He overhyped it. He created all kinds of fear, saying it could affect the entire population, when it couldn’t. And he’s doing—he’s using the exact same playbook for COVID.”

The killings of six whites by a Black Lives Matter supporter who drove his car into a Waukesha, WI Christmas parade made national news in November—briefly. (The New York Times relegated it to page A22). But many more whites than that are killed by blacks in each and every month without any national media attention at all. Below, what I could find by scouring local sources.

Arrested after the deaths of Virginia Sorenson, 79; Leanna Owen, 71; Tamara Durand, 52; Jane Kulich, 52; Wilhelm Hospel, 81; and Jackson Sparks, 8, was 39-year-old Darrell Brooks Jr.

You've seen the video clips and read the news stories. Gangs of looters spent the Thanksgiving weekend looting retail stores in our cities: Nordstrom, Louis Vuitton, Home Depot, Best Buy, Apple, pharmacies, jewelry stores, … Not all of these were big chain stores. Some, especially the jewelry stores, were single-outlet family enterprises. This gives a whole new meaning to the term "Black Friday."

Cops made a few half-hearted arrests here and there, but no perps were detained for long. After Thanksgiving Day lootings in Los Angeles the LAPD made fourteen arrests. Reporting on this a week later, the LA Times said "none of the 14 suspects remains in custody." One was a juvenile, the others were all bailed out or released without bail [ LAPD announces 14 arrests in connection with recent smash-and-grab robberies , by Gregory Yee, Brittny Mejia, LA Times,  December 2, 2021].

So far as we have been permitted to see, the looters are all black. No surprise there: to a fair first approximation, all crime in the U.S.A. is committed by blacks.

Hence the cautious, hands-off approach by police and prosecutors. If black looters were held indefinitely in jail the way those white January 6th protestors have been—except of course, I mean, for the one shot dead by a black cop—the city's crime stats would not display equity.

That would be terrible—plain evidence of white supremacy!

Our underclass is taking the concept of free stuff to a whole new level. Welcome to Jim Snow America.
