Foreign Born Workers Comprised 16.5% of Workforce in 2014

According to the BLS.

My interest in this subject has more to do with how it affects the pay scale overall than any particular distaste for foreign born folks. But it's definitely something that weighs on wages here and in other countries in the West. It's a megatrend that favors the corporate overlords, and it shows no sign of abating anytime soon, or ever.

In the NYT this week, this story details how Disney fired their entire IT staff after having them train their foreign replacements.

Want to know who else is jumping on this bandwagon? Microsoft, for one.  IBM. Deloitte. Ernst and Young.
