Immigration and the Economy

Every day we hear about the lack of talent to fill thousands of jobs across the country. Here we sit down with Kate Brick and Richard Andre from the non-partisan New American Economy and talk about the issue and a report just released that points to the need of a new pool of workers in not only the Des Moines Metro but across Iowa. Case in point, Iowa is currently home to more than 160,000 immigrants—a population larger than the city of Cedar Rapids. Between 2010 and 2016, Iowa’s foreign-born population grew by more than 15.2 percent an important statistic given the low birth rate in the state.  In addition we talk about the economic impact that can be attained...or missed.
