Asian immigrants more qualified for white-collar jobs than Americans natives


America has a rich history of immigration, especially with the far east. Asians have been immigrating to the US since the 19th century and have been met with staunch resistence like the Chinese Exclusion Act. Recent statistics show a rise in Asian immigration, but instead of unskilled labor, they tend to be educated and highly motivated. In contrast to the anti-immigrant rhetoric of the past, it’s important for the US to embrace these newcomers to fill their unmet skilled labor needs and increase capital flow into the country. United Press international reports:

Asian Americans are the fastest-growing, best educated and most successful racial group in the United States, a Pew Research Center study indicates.

Thirty-six percent of all new immigrants to the United States in 2010 were Asian, compared with 31 percent for Hispanics.

“At the end of the first decade of the 21st century, Asians have become the largest stream of new immigrants to the U.S. — and, thus, the latest leading actors in this great American drama,” said Paul Taylor, executive vice president of the Pew Research Center.

The report said Asian Americans are more satisfied than the general public with their lives, finances and the direction of the country, and they place more value than other Americans do on marriage, parenthood, hard work and career success.

While Asian Americans were once low-skilled, low-wage laborers in the United States, recent Asian arrivals are the most highly educated cohort of immigrants in U.S. history.

Asian American are the most likely of any major racial or ethnic group in America to live in mixed neighborhoods and to marry across racial lines.

Sixty-one percent of adults ages 25 to 64 who have come from Asia in recent years have at least a bachelor’s degree, double the share among recent non-Asian arrivals, the survey said Tuesday.

    This is poor assumptive result from the “data”. Asians are raised in a society in which success is measured by subjecting oneself to authority. Asians make better white collar workers because they won’t openly question or challenge the white collar heirarchy. Even those Asians with degrees from USA universities still, in general, lack the gumption to directly challenge authority.
    This may make them better white collar workers; but the company will stagnate from lack of  creative initiative.

      Typical double speak from white people. That Asians lack creativity or won’t question authority is just what insecure white people tell themselves so they can either discriminate against Asians or just feel better about themselves.

      You know who is more independent, more prone to challenge authority, more curative than even white people? Black people. So there you go Gary. Welcome your new dark skinned overlords.
