The U-6 unemployment rate counts those who want to work but have not looked recently plus those who work part time but want full time.
Of the 54.7 million working-age Americans not holding a job, more than half (27.7 million) have no education beyond high school.
According to Dr. Steven Camarota, the Centers Director of Research:
"The president seems to believe that jobs are plentiful for less-educated Americans who compete with illegal immigrants for jobs. In fact, the employment picture for such workers remains bleak."
According to the Census Bureau, there are 11 to 12 million illegal immigrants in the USA.
According to the Census Bureau, 7 to 8 million of them currently hold jobs.
55 million without a job, and yet some still claim that illegal aliens do the jobs that Americans “just won’t do”. Such crap.
And just how are the 3 to 5 million illegals supporting themselves?
