Report: Immigrant Workers Contribute In Large Metropolitan Areas

 Immigrants and the Economy:


 

 
Washington D.C. - This week, the Fiscal Policy Institute (FPI) released a report highlighting the contributions of immigrant workers in the 25 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. FPI's report broadens a growing understanding that immigrant workers make important economic contributions to economic growth in each of the 25 metropolitan areas studied and in the United States as a whole.
 
The report finds: 
  • Immigrants live and work in places key to the U.S. economy.
     
  • Immigrants are pulling their weight and contributing to our economy.

  • Immigration and economic growth go hand-in-hand.

  • Immigrants are more likely to be in the labor force, and they work in jobs across the economic spectrum. 

  • Immigrants and U.S.-born workers thrive at the top of the occupational ladder, but face challenges at the bottom.
