Using the civilian labor force and the labor force participation rate, we can easily show how many are working and how many are not working each month.
So I wanted to see how much the unemployed was growing by:
- Before the implementation of our Free Trade Agreements and the non-immigrant guest worker programs.
- During the period where we implemented Free Trade Agreements, but before we implemented the non-immigrant guest worker programs.
- After the implementation of both Free Trade Agreements and non-immigrant guest worker periods.
So I used the following date periods to do that:
- 1 Jan 1948 to 1 Dec 1975
- 1 Jan 1976 to 1 Dec 1989
- 1 Jan 1990 to 1 Feb 2019
As you can see in the following numbers, we had the following changes:
- Unemployment grew by 10,622,000 before free trade and non-immigrant guest worker programs.
- Unemployment grew by 19,629,000 when our free trade programs were implemented and before our non-immigrant guest worker programs
- Unemployment grew by 801,000 when our non-immigrant guest worker programs were implemented.
At first I was puzzled, but the more I think about it, this shows exactly what is happening.
Free Trade Agreements created an additional 19,629,000 unemployed because they were sending jobs to other countries.
During the H-1B period, unemployment continued to grow, but it is masked by importing non-immigrant guest worker programs which is how the unemployment numbers remain low.
As non-immigrant guest workers are imported, they are getting the bulk of the jobs and are being counted as employed, and the American citizens who are getting forced out are initially counted, but as their period of unemployment grows past the U-6 Specifications, they are no longer counted and are forced into:
- Living with Family
- Living out of vans and cargo trailers
Click on the following link to view my spreadsheet used to calculate these numbers.
Then tell me, why are we creating fewer and fewer jobs when we compare the current month against the previous month.
The chart above shows all data that was publicly available as of the date I retrieved it (15 Apr 2019)
The chart above takes that same data and only shows from 2000 till present to make it easier to read.
The chart above only shows the last few years so you can see it in detail.
Notice what the stock traders would call lower highs since around sep 2017?
Out of the 19 columns since that date, 5 of the gains over the previous year have been negative or a loss.
We need people like this that come here, and make our country a better place.
What I am against is the companies sending our jobs to other countries which DECREASES the total number of jobs available here in America for our fellow citizens.
And the companies importing non-immigrant guest workers to displace Americans in America after forcing their employees to train these replacements.
And the non-immigrant guest workers that work their way into a company and then make it so that American citizens can not be hired simply because they prefer to hire non-immigrant guest workers instead of our citizens that desperately need jobs to provide for their families.
Why is it that the American citizens forced out of the workforce by companies like Facebook and Google are not allowed to show what really is happening.
As an example, lets look at this video and this chart that I created to show our government what was happening in the workforce.
The events of the years since 2003 have changed me forever.
Nowadays I simply want to find a way to make $250,000.00
Why so little?
It would allow me to have my home and vehicle paid for and since I will be 62 at the end of this year, it would give me the ability to do nothing but finding a way to use Keep America At Work to educate those whose future depends on them understanding what this game of musical countries called globalization will bring their way if they don’t find a way to stop it.
In the following video I show how there are 23,327,000 displaced American workers forced out of the civilian labor pool
If you talk to the experts, you will find that their best guess of non-immigrant guest workers is about a million and a half which I don’t think includes visa types other than H-1B.
The difference between our Foreign Born employed workers and our Displaced American workers is: 4,448,000
My belief is that if we were to include the number of students working as interns on a OPT visa and the other non-immigrant guest worker types that we will be very close to that figure.
If you have a more accurate number, I want to hear about it.
