The number of foreign-born women who have a place of work in the U.S. has increased for the eight year in a row. In August, another 141.000 foreign-born women 16 and older managed to get a job, whereas the number of U.S.-born women has declined by 90.000.
Nationwide, there are currently 10.028 foreign-born working women in the United States, and only 59.258 million U.S.-born working women. Some specialists say that these figures are a consequence of the Great Recession, when the percentage of higher-paying jobs for women stopped growing, whereas low or medium skills jobs continued to increase. In December 2007, the number to American-born working women was almost the same as now, 59.322. By comparison, 9.041 million foreign-born women workers were employed at that time.
The overall number of foreign-born workers in the United States is 24.914 million.
