We hear a lot of complaining about immigrant workers coming in and taking all the available jobs, but know that for the foreign born, the unemployment situation is even worse than it is for those born in the USA. While the jobless rate for US natives increased from 5.8 percent in 2008 to 9.2 percent in 2009, the jobless rate for workers born in other countries rose from 5.8 percent to 9.7 percent in 2009. That's the worst it's been since 2003, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
