Trump Has Something Here. Where's the Rest of 'Em?

Holy bejabbers.

...since December 2007, according to the Household Survey, only 790,000 native born American jobs have been added. Contrast that with the 2.1 million foreign-born Americans who have found a job over the same time period...

Umnnhhh....and then there's last month: August a whopping 698,000 native-born Americans lost their job. This drop was offset by 204,000 foreign-born Americans, who got a job in the month of August....

So. Are we to believe that every single native-born worker who lost a job was a fat, overpaid, lazy, slob who couldn't or wouldn't work hard for the money (such as it is)*?


*And THAT ain't much; since 2005, the inflation-adjusted income of US citizens has been stagnant or worse.
