Unless you have to pay bills.
..According to BLS data, in November of 2007 there were 23.1 million
foreign workers in the United States with jobs. Today, the BLS reports,
there are 25.1 million foreign workers in the United States with jobs –

Apparently you have totally neglected to take into account the baby boomers who are reaching retirement age at the rate of 10,000 a DAY or 3,650,000 a year. The seven years you mention include at least 3 year during which baby boomers have been reaching retirement age at the rate of 10,000 per month. That's 11,000,000 in three years, which accounts for your 11,000,000 more people outside the workforce.
Apparently you have totally neglected actual, tested, measures of your "theory."
Try again someday.
