Both native-born Americans and immigrants gained jobs in August. But immigrant job gains were more robust. So American Worker Displacement rose.
And despite the 1.163 million immigrants reported as unemployed in August, the foreign-born work force population expanded by about 2 million, year-over-year, for the fifth consecutive month.
Another displacement metric, the immigrant share of total employment, rose to 18.053% in August, almost back to the May 2022 figure (18.089%) — the highest since we started tracking employment by nativity in January 2009
The Bureau of Labor Statistics also reported that from August 2021 to August 2022 hourly earnings rose 5.5%
But this was outpaced by inflation. The Consumer Price Index rose 8.3% year-over-year in August, above expectations. So real hourly earnings actually decreased year-over-year by some 2.8%
