Re: Study of incomes for men in 30s: Dad had it better, Seattle Times, May 27, 2007

From: A Seattle Reader

One reason given for the decline in income of  30-something men is immigration:  "increased immigration could have pulled down median wages, since most immigrants at first earn less than native born workers."  It seems that the researchers led by Pew Charitable Trusts [Report: Economic Mobility: Is the American Dream Alive and Well?, PDF]completely ignored the possibility that immigration may lower the incomes of native workers.
