But, but, economists and liberals have told me that immigration has absolutely no effect on employment prospects and that believing anything else is pure racism!
The second reason why teens work less today is that employers are more reluctant to hire them. First, the rise of low-skill immigration in the last few decades has created more competition for exactly the sort of jobs that teenagers used to do, like grocery-store cashiers, restaurant servers, and retail salespeople.
Huh. Doesn’t it suck when the facts are all racist lies. Except they are still facts.
