Still an Hourglass? Immigrant workers in Middle-skilled Jobs (Report in Brief)

Report Author: 
Randy Capps, Michael Fix and Serena Yi-Ying Lin
Original Date of Publication: 
2010 Sep

This report casts doubt on  the depiction of the immigrant workforce as an hourglass noting that almost a quarter of immigrants in 2006 were working in "middle skill" jobs compared to 29% of native-born Americans. Middle-skilled jobs are defined as "jobs that require more than a high school but less than a four-year college degree and that typically pay a family-sustaining wage ($30,000 annually per worker). In three of four specific occupations analyzed in the report (healthcare, IT and hospitality) the percent of immigrants actually exceeded that of native workers.
