Almost half of white Millennials say that discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minorities.


From an economic point of view, immigration is good because it encourages specialization and thus efficiency. In a low-immigration world, an American accountant might have to pay $25 or $30 an hour for yard services by American-born landscapers. At that price, she might choose to do the yard work herself. If higher immigration lowers the price of landscaping work to $10 to $12 an hour, she may hire a landscaper and devote her newfound free time to extra accounting work. Instead of leaving the office at 5 p.m. to cook dinner for her family, she can stay until 6 o’clock and order from Postmates as she drives home. Or she can buy more services than she otherwise would. A lower bid from an immigrant-employing contractor might allow her to renovate her kitchen this year rather than postponing it to next year.
But all of this only happens because lower-earning immigrants displace the Americans who used to do the work at higher costs. You may ask, “So what happens to those displaced Americans?” The economist’s answer is that, pressed by immigrant competition, displaced American workers are driven to “upskill.” Perhaps a former landscaper learns some Spanish, and thus can act as the foreman of a crew of immigrants. Perhaps he shifts to sales or design work. Either way, the economic models say, everybody is better off.

What happens to those at the top who cannot “upskill” and who are deemed overqualified by every position below their previous occupation?

I will tell you from 16 years of my own experience – you will not get hired, you will lose everything, and when you finally hit bottom, you may get hired as a janitor at your local VA Hospital if you were a vet, but you will not be given the opportunity to work your way back up the ladder simply because those who are making those decisions do not believe your stories about what is happening in the job market.

And who can blame them when they have not experienced it first hand.

For employers who rely on foreign professionals to supplement their U.S. workforce, debarment can devastate the employer’s U.S. business.


For example, the DOL memo suggests that the employer may accomplish this by posting a hard-copy message in a conspicuous location at the worksite and point interested parties to the location of the notice on the employer’s website. The hard-copy at the worksite need not repeat the content of the notice but could simply provide enough information to identify the employer and location of the notice, such as a URL. Employers should label notices on their website by occupation and location to avoid potential major problems during a Department of Labor investigation.
