“The increase in the potential labor force will slow markedly,” The declining number of U.S.-born working-age adults with U.S.-born parents means that they will become a smaller share of the working-age population, Pew found.
They will make up 66% in 2035, compared with 74% in 2015. Meanwhile, U.S.-born children of immigrants will make up a growing share of working-age adults: 13% in 2035 versus 6% in 2015.
The immigrant share of working-age adults will also tick up, from 20% in 2015 to 21% in 2035. That fall in working-age adults born in the U.S. is due to ageing baby boomers and low birth rates since the 1970s.
The increasing immigrant share of workers is not necessary:
- Increase education standards and gear training and college degrees to actual job needs
- Using automation, start reducing public employees by 40,000 per month using economic and cross-training incentives feeding them into the private economy
- Discontinue agencies and programs that are tax payer subsidies to the so called public servants
- Increase the working age to 70
- Workers over 70 can continue to work without paying into social security
Many, many more simple fixes will stabilize US population growth while maintaining and improving our quality of life and retaining our culture.
