Major labor shortage due to shortage of immigrant labor

Immigrants have always been the backbone of the U.S. economy. They provide labor that no one else wants to do in many situations, including working in meatpacking plants, agriculture and construction. But, with the crackdown in immigration under full force, the U.S. labor market is at a crisis level.

The National Immigration Forum, a Washington think tank, is estimating that the U.S. will be facing a labor shortage of 7.5 million by 2020 with the shortage of workers getting even worse with a decrease of newborns being born. Employers are having to become more accommodating to their workers in order to attract them. This can include prayer rooms for Muslim workers, English classes, and pushing for a better guest worker program. Immigrants make up almost 20% of the labor market and with fewer immigrants coming across the border, labor shortage will be a major problem.

Immigrants from all over the world, not just Mexico, have always been the backbone of the U.S. labor market. These immigrants do the jobs that no one else wants to do, but that we all depend on. These are very important jobs which help us keep our homes and businesses in good shape, our food available in the store, our yards looking nice, and many other contributions. Immigrants who need help with employment visa or other immigration issue may want to speak with an attorney who specializes in employment immigration. An attorney understands the roadblocks a worker may be facing and can make sure their legal rights are protected.

Most Miami residents understand how important immigrants are to Florida's economy. But, with the recent crackdown on immigration, they can feel like they are being unfairly targeted.
