Correlations: Immigrants' Earnings Are Losing Ground


There are 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S., up from 3 million in 1980. If an immigration law passes, many will be able to apply for legal status, which over time may help boost their wages. Over the past 40 years, the pace at which immigrants closed the wage gap with U.S.-born workers has slowed. Today, they’re losing ground, in part because wage growth has stalled in the broader U.S. economy.
