The U.S. Is Not 'Too Empty' or 'In Dire Need of New Faces', as the N.Y. Times Puts It

By David North on April 12, 2019

Part of the usually on-target "The Upshot" team at the New York Times wrote a long piece about the "decline of the work force" and the supposedly related "dire need" for more immigrants. Appearing on the front page of the April 10 print edition, it was titled "A 'Full' Nation In Dire Need Of New Faces" and was written by Neil Irwin and Emily Badger.

Yes, America is getting a little older; and, yes, birth rates have fallen; and, yes, happily, the published unemployment rate is down, but the whole thrust of the article was a sensed need for more immigrants to fill those empty jobs.

It was if there were no other ways of expanding the work force without adding to our already high rates of legal and illegal immigration. And, from their cozy perch on Manhattan's West Side, there was no indication that the writers sensed that there are huge benefits for the powerless in tighter labor markets.
